Grants for short-term research on ecology in Germany and Europe

Ecologic’s U.S. partner organization, The American Council on Germany (ACG), is seeking applications for the 2007 McCloy Fellowship in Environmental Affairs. The application deadline is March 1. The Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for environmental policy mid-career professionals and academics from Germany and America to travel abroad for one month to conduct independent research, exchange ideas and best practices, and form lasting collaborative partnerships with transatlantic colleagues. The award includes round-trip airfare to Germany or the United States, pre-approved inter-city travel, as well as a daily stipend of $150 for up to 28 days abroad. The Fellowship must be used within one calendar year of receiving the award.

The Fellowships represent an excellent opportunity to enhance mutual understanding of how environmental policy issues are framed and addressed within each country. The program promotes sustainable development and social responsibility both within the two countries, as well as internationally. Fellows design a self-directed project and, in consultation with ACG and Ecologic, develop an itinerary and identify potential collaborators. Past McCloy Fellows have analysed issues ranging from climate change and clean technologies to the U.S. Superfund Program and Germany’s methods for sustainable development.

More information about the Fellowship and the application process is available on the ACG website:,86,0,0,1,0.

Remember: The deadline to submit an application is March 1, 2007.
