The new class of the Cuomo Foundation’s climate change scholarship program has just been officially formalised. Three new doctoral students thus join a pool of 11 researchers from developing countries, all supported by the Foundation for their PhD thesis.
The fellowship program initiated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) helps young researchers under the age of 40 for their academics. Their research topics focus on the 3 fields of study, related to climate change i.e. impacts, adaptation and mitigation.
The fellowship program initiated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) helps young researchers under the age of 40 for their academics.
Candidates of the 2018/2019 year are from Myanmar, Senegal and Sri Lanka. Each of them study an issue observed in their respective countries. The three newcomers are joined by the Ethiopian researcher from the previous class, who had his grant extended this year—one allowing him to duly finalise his already well-advanced research.
The Foundation has been a partner in this initiative since 2013 with the IPCC.
