Global fellowships in marine conservation at Duke University

I was a Duke Global Fellow 4 years ago and had a really great summer out there. Apart from the great learning experience and having the opportunity to work with leading researchers in the field I made lasting friendships with like minded, fun people and subsequently have built collaborations for research. I fully recommend that anyone interested in marine conservation applies for this.

Deadline: 15 February 2012
Fellowships for international students will fully cover travel expenses, room and board, and tuition for two courses, your required course BIOLOGY 109/ENVIRON 109/ENVIRON 209 Conservation Biology and Policy and an elective course of your choice to subject to availability. The courses begin on July 9 and ends on August 10, 2012.

The Global Fellowships are available to any international applicant with a good working knowledge of English who has an interest and qualifications in marine conservation biology.  The course requires some background in marine science and political science. Usually Global Fellows have a BA or BS degree in hand.

There is no separate fellowship application form. Intent to apply for a fellowship should be made known on the
 printed summer course enrollment form. It is our preference to receive applications via email (rachel.lopiccolo@duke.edu) or by fax (252)504-7648. 
Application materials should be directed to: 
Duke Marine Lab Global Fellows Program
c/o Rachel Lo Piccolo
135 Duke Marine Lab Rd
Beaufort NC 28516, USA

Application Materials
In addition to the enrollment form, each Global Fellowship applicant is required to submit the following credentials:

1.    A brief essay - please limit this to one page - describing the applicant’s education, research, and work experience background please note a Curriculum Vitae does not take the place of this essay;
2.    A brief statement of purpose - please limit this to one page - i.e., describing the applicant's reason for taking the course, how the applicant will be able to apply the training in his/her home country, the applicant's future goals;
3.    A letter of recommendation from academic faculty or employer addressed to Dr. Mike Orbach.  We do not offer guidelines about the information to be included in your reference letter. These letters typically include how the referee knows you, his/her opinions of your work together in the past, and thoughts about whether he/she feels you'd be well suited to this program.
4.    A Complete Curriculum Vitae.
5.    A copy of your transcript is preferred. It may be an unofficial version. The transcript can be emailed to rachel.lopiccolo@duke.edu or faxed to (252) 504-7638 or scanned and emailed to the attention of Rachel Lo Piccolo.  A non-certified translation of the transcript is fine.  If sending a transcript is impossible, then please send a copy of your degree. If a traditional transcript is available, documentation certifying your courses, grades and official notes taken in each course during university studies in addition to a copy of your diploma will be required.

Due Date
Global Fellowship applications materials must be received no later than
 15  February 2012 by Rachel Lo Piccolo (rachel.lopiccolo@duke.edu).  All applicants will be notified of their award status shortly after the deadline date.We appreciate your interest in our Global Fellows program.  If you have any questions you may contact Rachel Lo Piccolo at rachel.lopiccolo@duke.edu.
