Payne International Development Fellowship Program: 2016 Application Now Open!

The USAID Donald M. Payne International Development Graduate Fellowship Program seeks to attract outstanding young people who are interested in pursuing careers in the Foreign Service of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). If you want to work on the front lines of some of the most pressing global challenges of our times — poverty, hunger, injustice, disease, environmental degradation, climate change, conflict and violent extremism – the Foreign Service of the U.S. Agency for International Development provides an opportunity to advance U.S. foreign policy interests and reflect the American people’s compassion and support of human dignity. The Payne Fellowship, which provides up to $90,000 in benefits over two years for graduate school, internships, and professional development activities, provides a unique pathway to the USAID Foreign Service.

The Payne Fellowship encourages the application of members of minority groups who have historically been underrepresented in international development careers and those with financial need. The fellowship is named in honor of longtime development champion, the late Congressman Donald Payne. The initiative is funded by USAID and administered by Howard University. Fellowship recipients can use the award to attend U.S. graduate programs throughout the country; they will join the USAID Foreign Service upon completion of the program, as long as they success fully complete the Payne Program and USAID entry requirements.

– Connection between proposed project, academic studies, and professional/educational goals and objectives

Made possible through the support of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Fellowship is named for late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, S. Sterling Munro, Jr., the former top aide to Senator Jackson and Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration, and Gene Munro, a lifelong advocate for public service and the wife of S. Sterling Munro Jr.

Undergraduate scholarship information sessions & workshops

The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards has a very full schedule of scholarship-related information sessions and workshops for undergraduates during fall quarter!

Students can also find all this info and more on our website at http://expd.washington.edu/scholarships.

Scholarships 101 – Getting Started in the Search for Scholarships

Specifically designed for freshmen and sophomores, this introductory workshop provides students with information to begin the scholarship search and to develop a competitive edge for merit-based scholarships. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/244.

* Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171
* Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171
* Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015, 3:30-4:30pm, MGH 171

Scholarships 201: The Search for Undergraduate Scholarships & Graduate Fellowships

This session provides assistance to continuing students looking to fund undergraduate academic years and graduate school. It will include information on discipline specific scholarships, national funding opportunities, scholarship search sites, and tips to develop competitive applications. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/245.

* Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015, 3:30-4:30pm, MGH 171
* Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171
* Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171

Curriculum Vitae Writing Workshop

Develop your undergraduate CV for use in scholarship, fellowship, research opportunities, and graduate school applications! A Curriculum Vitae (“CV” or “vitae”) is a comprehensive, biographical statement emphasizing your professional qualifications and activities. A CV is similar to a resume, but an advantage to the CV format is the significant freedom to choose the headings and categories for your information and the strength reflected in their arrangement.

Bring a working draft, such as an existing resume, and a list of activities including: Honors, Awards & Prizes received no longer than 5 years ago, Academic and Research Activities, Community Service Involvement, Work History, and Activities outside of the Academic Environment. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards staff to develop and strengthen a draft of your CV! RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/237.

* Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171

* Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171

Personal Statement Writing Workshop

The Personal Statement is an important part of an application package. Applying for scholarships, internships, and graduate/professional programs often requires a personal statement or application letter. This type of writing requires you to outline your strengths confidently and concisely, which can be challenging. Personal Statement Workshops will provide students with essential information to develop an understanding of not only writing about their interests, eligibility and suitability for applications, but also to learn how their statements provide evidence of their achievements that aren’t reflected in other parts of an application. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/236.

* Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, 3:30-4:30pm, MGH 171

The James and Mary Pinchot Fellow in Sustainability Studies

Yale University invites applications from emerging scholars and early career faculty for appointment as the James and Mary Pinchot Fellow in Sustainability Studies. The Fellow will display early promise of excellence in research focused on issues of broad environmental significance using perspectives from the humanities, social sciences or biological/physical sciences. We are especially interested in scholars who demonstrate a commitment to excellence through diversity and who would contribute to the diversification of the field of environmental and sustainability studies.

The appointment is available for up to three years. It will be held in the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, but the Fellow will have opportunities to interact with faculty, students, and leadership across the University. Interest in collaborating with other faculty in a strongly interdisciplinary School, as well as with faculty working in cognate departments within Yale College, would be advantageous.

The Pinchot Fellow will be expected to assist with the mentoring of PhD, Masters and undergraduate students, as well as teach one seminar course per year in an area of sustainability studies. Otherwise, the Fellow will have the opportunity to pursue independent research.

QUALIFICATIONS
The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a related field and will show evidence of exceptional ability in both research and teaching. Personal experience of communities that are underrepresented in the academy, and the capacity to respond in pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds, would be an asset.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Review of applications will begin on July 1, 2015 and continue until the Fellowship is awarded.

Prior to applying, candidates should explore the School’s website (http://environment.yale.edu) and consider how their expertise can complement existing strengths within the School and more broadly at Yale.  Please upload: 1) cover letter, 2) curriculum vita, 3) statement of research, 4) statement of teaching interests, and 5) names and contact information of four references via https://apply.interfolio.com/29435.

For more information about the position, contact Assistant Dean Angela Kuhne at fesdeansoffice@yale.edu. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
