Jeanne Sauvè Scholarship-McGill, Canada
SAUVE SCHOLARS is an opportunity for highly-motivated people, under thirty, of demonstrated leadership potential, to come to Montreal for eight months to research, reflect, question and enlarge upon their understanding of the state of the world and their roles in effecting positive change.
The Program itself, in addition, will provide intimate weekly seminars with eminent journalists, political figures and innovators in business, academia and the arts.
SCHOLARS will be awarded a stipend valued at $30,000 Canadian for travel, tuition, housing, meals and supplies. In addition, the Program provides the costs of group excursions to academically and culturally stimulating sites in the northeastern United States, as well as adventure trips in Canada's dramatic north.
SCHOLARS will be encouraged to produce material, during or immediately after their residence, to be published on the SAUVE SCHOLAR website, or in a hard-copy version, for world-wide dissemination and discussion. These works may take the form of written text, photo essays or videos.
As the body of work of the SCHOLARS grows, the website will become a platform for the broadest range of critical discourse amongst the emerging leaders and an ever-widening audience. The electronic media make possible creative linkages with other web vehicles for societal innovation and change.
It will be fun, it will be challenging, to be in an intellectually stimulating environment, rich in human and physical resources. But without the pressures of exams, a job, deadlines and financial responsibility. With networks enriched and expanded, horizons sharpened and refocused, it will be a year of incredible personal growth.
DAAD Long-term Research Grants for Doctoral Studies Objective Target group for research grants :
excellently-qualified teaching staff from universities researchers from research institutions in any field of study/research applicants from private sectors with at least two years of working experience Note: Any teaching staff predominantly or exclusively involved in non-degree programs are not eligible.
Research grants can be used to carry out :
research projects at a German higher education institution for the purpose of gaining a doctorate in Indonesia (according to the "DAAD Sandwich Model" - see annex 3) , age limit of 35 at the time of application research projects at a German university for the purpose of gaining a doctorate in Germany , age limit of 31 at the time of application
Scholarship duration The length of the grant is set by the grant committee during the selection depending on the project in question and on the applicant's work schedule. In the case of full doctoral programs in Germany the scholarship will be granted for up to three years. For sandwich scholarships, the research stay in Germany will be supported for a maximum of two years.
Support can only be provided for the completion of a full doctoral program in Germany when special support policy reasons exist. Such reasons include, for example, the lack of comparable research or academic supervision opportunities in the home country or when the doctoral topic requires several years of research in Germany. Even when support has been awarded for a full doctoral program, that award will be limited to one year at a time. Extensions of the scholarship then depend on whether or not the evaluation finds the previous award period has been successfully completed.
Value Depending on the award holder's academic level, the DAAD will pay a monthly award of 795 Euros (doctoral candidates) or 975 Euros (doctoral candidates with at least two year's academic work experience) plus travel and luggage cost and a health insurance allowance. In addition to these payments, the DAAD will pay a study and research allowance.
When award holders take doctoral programs run under the "DAAD Sandwich Model" and obtain the degree at the home university the award may include the travel expenses of both academic supervisors.
Requirements Master Degree (S2 Degree) with minimum GPA of 3,00 (from 1-4 scale) The most important selection criterion is a convincing and well-planned research project to be completed during the stay in Germany. This Ph.D. research has to be agreed upon by a German academic supervisor at the German host university. Please attach written confirmation of the supervision by a professor in Germany commenting on your research program. It is required that doctoral candidates wishing to take a doctorate/PhD in their home country (Sandwich Program) must register for the doctorate at their home university. Applicants must either have certified proficiency in English - TOEFL 550 points or IELTS band 6 (obtained in the last two years before application) or good German language skills. The award of DAAD research grants is subject to an age limit for applicants of 32, respectively 36 for the sandwich program, at the beginning of the scholarship. Applicants who have been in Germany for more than two years at the time they begin the scholarship-supported studies cannot be considered. Special note for applicants from the medical field: The special leaflet "Additional information on DAAD-research-grants for limited, specialized medical studies" provides information on specific requirements ( see annex 4 ).

Initially, scholarships are awarded for one academic year and can be extended for students with good study achievements to cover the full length of the chosen degree course.
Value The DAAD will pay a monthly grant of 715 Euros plus travel and luggage cost and health insurance allowance. In addition to these payments, the DAAD will pay a study and research allowance. Tuition fees cannot be paid by the DAAD.
Requirements Sarjana (S1) Degree with minimum GPA of 2,75 (from 1-4 scale) Besides previous academic achievements, the most important selection criterion is a convincing presentation of the applicant's academic and personal reasons for the planned study project in Germany. The applicants are requested to bring the notification of admission issued by the German host institution for the desired degree course or proof of relevant contacts established at the time of application. Even if an applicant has qualified for a scholarship after the interview, the DAAD scholarship will only be granted after admission to the study program chosen.

Annex: 3 - Research Grants for Doctoral Candidates within the "Sandwich Model" top Objective Whereas conventional scholarships for doctorate or PhD studies assume that a scholarship holder will stay at a German institution of higher education for several consecutive years, the "Sandwich Scheme" described hereafter is a flexible multi phase funding programme. Within the Sandwich Scheme, PhD students carry out their research and studies alternately in their home country and in Germany, following a schedule set in advance and under continuous supervision by a German academic. The doctorate is obtained at the homeland university.
Purpose Within the academic funding schemes of numerous development countries, training and further education of future and young university teachers is given special priority. Besides specialisation and increasing previously gained knowledge, students very often strive for a PhD or doctorate degree as frequently required according to the regulations ruling university careers in their home country. Even in cases where PhD studies would be possible in the student's home country, a doctorate degree from an industrial nation is often preferred for reasons of prestige. PhD studies abroad, however, carry with them risks: of alienation connected with very long study courses, loss of originally reserved lecturing posts at the home university, of research geared too much to the developed country and its needs, and finally the risk of temptation to settle in the host country.
In an effort to minimize these risks, the DAAD has developed the scheme of cooperative PhD funding (Sandwich-Scholarships) for nationals of developing countries whose universities offer doctorates.
Procedure This means the procedure can be as follows:
the German university lecturer/professor travels to the homeland of the future doctoral candidate to draw up a joint protocol signed by both the local and the German supervisor, which details the dissertation subject, the planned work measures, and their duration preparatory studies and research for the PhD thesis in the home country (data collection and field research) without DAAD funding studies and research at a German institution of higher education (maximum 2 years) if necessary, visit by the foreign academic supervisor and co-advisor at the German institution (progress control, consolidation of institutional contacts) completion of the thesis in the home country (without DAAD funding) visit of the German supervisor to the home country of the PhD student (last corrections and participation at the viva as external examiner) The main characteristic of this Sandwich Scheme is the individually tailor-made PhD programme schedule set with the greatest flexibility possible regarding the beginning and duration of each individual funding phase.
Applicants for funding within the Sandwich Scheme must be no more than 36 years of age when taking up the scholarship.
Eligibility, application forms and documents for this programme are the same as for research grants for doctoral candidates and young academics and scientists. The extensive and detailed research proposal must be accompanied by a work- and time schedule agreed upon by the academic advisors, both in the home country and in Germany.
Annex: 4 - DAAD Research Grants Awarded to support Extended Medical Continuing Education and Training (not full Medical Specialisation in Germany) top The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) does not support full courses of training for medical specialisation. Application for a scholarship to support medical continuing education and training lasting from one to a maximum of two years at German university clinics is open only to candidates who meet the following criteria.
have completed at least 7 years of medical training with a university degree and must hold a license to practice medicine in their home country (physicians/dentists from developing countries must prove that they have gained at least 3 years of professional practice after completing their medical /dental training) have commenced specialist medical training in their home country in a course which leads to a professional qualification be studying or working at a university clinic in their home country at the time of application intend to pursue a university career after completing the continuing education and training in Germany have received confirmation of the provision of academic supervision and a study place from German university clinic be no older than 32 years of age (when they commence the award-supported stay) In order to be able to work in a German clinic, foreign physicians require a so-called "Permit for the Temporary Practice of Medicine" (Erlaubnis zur voruebergehenden Ausuebung des aerztlichen Berufs), which the DAAD will obtain on behalf of its scholarship holders. Please note that this may take several weeks or even months.

Studentships & Research Grants at Foundation for Urban and Regional Studies (FURS)
Kategori: Beasiswa kuliah dan riset
Yth.Untuk Teman-teman semua, Bagi yg sudah terdaftar di salah satu Universitas di manapun atau tengah melakukan riset, tetapi terhambat dana, mungkin ini bisa menjadi salah satu alternatif. Namun ini khusus di bidang Urban and Regional Studies. Sources.
Foundation for Urban and Regional Studies FURS is concerned to promote urban and regional research and within this broad field it is particularly keen to encourage an understanding of the interconnection between social, economic and political processes and of the broader causes and effects of these processes. This means for example that research which examines policies critically and focuses on their unintended as well as intended consequences is more likely to be supported than research on managerially defined questions. Conversely research which takes a 'technical' approach to urban and regional questions and does not place them within wider contexts of understanding is unlikely to be given priority. Although these concerns are likely to lead to social scientists such as sociologists, political scientists, geographers, economists and town planners predominating among applicants, others such as lawyers, cultural theorists, anthropologists and historians should not be discouraged from applying. FURS Studentships within the field of urban and regional studies Studentships are intended to permit students, generally from low and middle income countries, to pursue postgraduate research degrees. In recent years studentships have been awarded to students from countries including Argentina, Cameroons, Chile, Nepal, South Africa, Turkey, Uruguay and Zambia.
The value of the studentships will normally be up to £9,300 per annum and they will be for one or two years' duration (subject to satisfactory progress). The Trustees have the discretion to increase this in the light of special circumstances or hardship. No support can be given towards travel expenses. A third year extension may be granted subject to a further application. The studentship can be spent on living expenses or fees but is not intended to cover the full costs of being a student, and applicants will need to apply to other sources of funding.
Students who wish to apply for a one year grant only (eg because they have already completed part of their degree) are encouraged to do so.
FURS studentships may be held in any department where the Trustees are satisfied with supervisory arrangements for research on urban and regional subjects. In general, these will be departments with a tradition of supervision in these areas, but if you wish to study in a department where this is not the case, you will need to supply evidence regarding the appropriateness of the department.
All studentships are conditional on acceptance by the university department. If an offer of a place has been received by the time of application this should be included. Successful candidates will be asked to provide a copy of a letter of acceptance from their chosen institution before the award of a studentship can be confirmed and any monies dispensed.
The Trustees regret that no correspondence can be entered into in relation to their decision, which must be taken as final. However, unsuccessful candidates may apply one more time in a future year.
Once a studentship has been awarded, all correspondence in connection with it must be made with the Secretary at the address below from whom additional copies of the application forms and further particulars can be obtained.
The Foundation for Urban and Regional Studies is a Charitable Trust directly linked to the Company which produces the International Journal for Urban and Regional Research. The Trust is managed by a group of Trustees who are, in turn, responsible to the British Charities Commission for the appropriate use and allocation of its funds.
Applications are invited for a number of studentships within the field of urban and regional studies.
Applications must be received by 31 January each year. Late applications will not be considered under any circumstances and no correspondence will be entered into. Each application will be acknowledged and successful applicants will be informed by late March.
FURS Research Grants within the field of urban and regional studies Applications are invited for a number of research grants. These may be held in any university. The Trustees are anxious to encourage newly graduated researchers or junior colleagues of established researchers who have difficulty in getting funds to support research.
Applications must be received by 31 January each year. Late applications will not be considered under any circumstances and no correspondence will be entered into. Each application will be acknowledged and successful applicants will be informed by late March.
Funding is only offered to those students who are within the field of urban and regional studies.
Eligibility: From 2005, only applicants whose nationality falls into the countries listed in Groups B and C of the World Bank classification. will be eligible to apply.
The normal value of FURS research grants is up to £2,000. But in addition to research grants of £2,000 value, a limited number of higher value research grants (maximum £5,000) may be awarded where this is justified by the nature of the work to be carried out and the strength of the application.
The research grants can be used to help pay for research, which is:
carried out as part of a higher degree, or not part of a higher degree. You will be expected to supply:
A brief account of your training and qualifications on the application form provided. An outline of your proposed research. This should explain the significance of the topic, and refer to the research questions to be investigated, relevant theoretical debates or hypotheses, and the methods of research to be used (including any problems of data access).
A precise account of how the grant is to be spent and over what period. Please indicate whether alternative sources of funds are available. A statement from a senior scholar who is familiar with your work and who can confirm that you are able to carry out the work proposed. The Trustees would expect an academic tutor, Head of department or research team, or the equivalent to write such a letter.
The name of a person who can be contacted to report on the progress of your research.

PHILIPPINES : ADB Student Essay Competition on Asia's Future
Kategori: Lomba kompetisi karya tulis/ilmiah/makalah/essay/esai tentang Asia disponsori oleh ADB dan ROAD
ADB Launches Student Essay Competition on Asia's Future
MANILA, PHILIPPINES - ADB today called on the young voices of Asia to participate in an essay competition on the topic, “Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific.”
The competition, organized by ADB and ROAD, a network of Japanese university students concerned about development issues, is part of an event that will precede ADB’s 40th Annual Meeting, to be held in Kyoto, Japan, in May 2007.
“Young people in Asia and the Pacific need to be fully engaged in order to effectively address the long-term development challenges confronting the region,” said Bindu N. Lohani, Director General of ADB’s Regional and Sustainable Development Department. “The competition provides an opportunity to publicize the vision of today’s youth for the future world in which they will live, work, and govern.” English-language essays of up to 2,000 words are invited from university students aged 18-29 years who are citizens of ADB’s developing member countries, as well as Japanese students at Japanese universities.
The essays – written from a country or regional perspective – should address one of three specific topics: 1) economic growth and environmental conservation; 2) human resource development and institutions; or 3) industry and infrastructure.
Three development experts will judge the essays on the basis of originality and creativity of thought, structure and coherence of arguments, awareness of sustainable development within the context of the essayist’s environment and realities, and relevance to the competition’s themes.
Fifteen winners will be selected from across ADB’s five regional departments – Central and West Asia, East Asia, the Pacific, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. An additional ten winners will be chosen from among students at Japanese universities, including seven from developing member country students and three Japanese citizens.
