Udall Center-IE Fellows Program
The Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy at The University of Arizona offers the Udall Center Fellows Program for faculty members and researchers to engage in research on any topic related to public policy. Fellows will be affiliated with the Udall Center and with the Institute of the Environment. Since the program’s inception in 1990, the Center has hosted 131 fellows representing 40 departments or academic units at the UA. IE has supported 31 of those Fellows from 20 units.
IE funds at least one, one-semester fellowship to support research or curriculum development in the public policy aspects of global environmental change. Applicants for the Udall Center-IE environmental policy fellowships are encouraged but not limited to consider projects related to the human dimensions of environmental variability and change, or the use and value of environmental knowledge and information in policy and decision making. Work leading to the development of an interdisciplinary research proposal is especially encouraged.
The science and policy component of the competition will be open to faculty members in the physical, biological, and social sciences who wish to broaden their understanding of the public policy dimensions of global change.
Terms of the Fellowship
Fellows will use the IE funds to secure release time from departmental obligations to devote the majority of their time to fellowship activities for one semester. Thus, an application must be approved prior to submission by the applicant’s department head or unit director, and the dean.
Each applicant should submit both a printed copy and an electronic copy (by email with attachments in MS Word or Adobe PDF):
- A brief statement describing general policy research interests;
- Plans for a specific project to be undertaken as a Udall Center Fellow (up to five pages);
- A plan identifying any specific proposals already submitted or to be submitted for external support for the project;
- A curriculum vitae;
- A letter of support from the department head or dean;
- A letter of reference.
Applicants need to specify the semester for which they are applying (Fall 2011, Spring 2012, or no preference). For more information, contact the Udall Center at 626-4393, or visit http://udallcenter.arizona.edu/personnel/fellows_app.php/.
Printed applications should be submitted to the Udall Center at 803 East First Street, and electronic copies to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Udall Center expects to issue a call for applications for it Fellows Program for 2013–2014 in early 2013 (February or March). For more information, consult the Udall Center Fellows Program page
Applications would be reviewed by a panel drawn from the Udall Center's former Fellows and other UA faculty, with an announcement of the results of the competition in April or May 2013.
