The MyCOE / SERVIR Initiative is currently accepting proposals for a seven months fellowship program for undergraduate and graduate students from Lower Mekong countries.  Interested students should propose a research project that will provide a lasting impact in addressing challenges in Climate Change, Sustainable Landscapes and/or Watersheds.  Proposals are due November 3, 2013. 

Proposals must also include an outreach component to share results with local communities, stakeholders, decision-makers and youth in the area.  By joining this program, students will receive customized capacity training in GIS, remote sensing, GPS, and/or spatial techniques to help them enrich their research.  Students will also receive professional development, have access to additional mentoring by international experts and engage in an online community with other fellows.

Interested students must apply with a mentor who is willing to work closely with them throughout the duration of the program and attend the 10-day workshop hosted at the USAID Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA) in Bangkok, Thailand on January 15-25, 2014.
