Study in the U.S.
Carl Malmberg Fellowship
The Global Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh has new endowment funding to support an early-career Lesotho national working in community health care issues for one or two semesters. The endowment is able to support international transportation, lodging, health insurance and a stipend to cover food and living expenses. The exact dates are negotiable.
The successful candidate is expected to participate in a range of workshops, classes and other curricular opportunities tailored, in so far as possible, to the candidate’s area of expertise. Classes are provided free of charge, but do not carry university credit towards a degree. The Fellow is selected from young professionals whose record of accomplishment in the early stages of their career indicates strong potential for outstanding achievement and a capacity to contribute to the development of Lesotho. By giving future leaders an experience combining U.S. society and culture and current approaches in the fields in which they work, the program provides a basis for lasting ties between practitioners in the U.S. and their professional counterparts in Lesotho.
The successful candidate will return to Lesotho with documentation of the completed work-enhancement opportunities and will participate in the selection of the next year’s candidates in this pioneering effort. Applications close on March 1 every two years. This opportunity is available for the summer or spring semesters. (Next cycle: 2014)
