      Subject: Duke University Global Fellowships

      Good Afternoon,

      I am the administrator for the Duke Center for Marine Conservation at the Duke University Marine Lab. Our purpose is to offer educational, research and collaborative opportunities for person or organizations in the field of marine conservation.

      Each year, the Duke University Marine Laboratory/Duke Center for Marine Conservation offers an exciting opportunity for international students. Duke’s Integrated Marine Conservation Program teaches the principles necessary to the conservation and preservation of the coastal and oceanic environment. The focus is on interdisciplinary problem solving—using natural and social science theory to resolve real world environmental problems. This program is a tremendous opportunity for students at any level to think about conservation biology and policy in an environment full of students and faculty grappling with the same issues. The core class (BIO 109/ENV209 Conservation Biology and Policy) involves field trips, discussion groups, role play, lecture and a final project that focuses on the integration of science and policy. Students will leave the class with an appreciation of the policy process, as well as knowledge in the fundamentals of marine conservation.

      Please see the enclosed announcement I would like to post/have posted to your list serve. This is a wonderful opportunity. I do hope you will help me get the word out. Time is short…..our final application date is March 1, 2010. I am sorry for the short notice, but will appreciate any and all efforts on our behalf.

      In anticipation of a positive response, I thank you.

      (Summer Term II)
      Deadline: 1 March
      For additional information regarding the Global Fellowships in Marine Conservation applicants are encouraged to contact ml_admissions@....
      Fellowships for international students will fully cover travel expenses, room and board, and tuition for both BIO 109/ENV 209 Conservation Biology and Policy and one elective course subject to availability.
      This fellowship is available to any international applicant with interest and qualifications in conservation biology.
      Application Form
      There is no separate fellowship application form. Intent to apply for a fellowship should be made known on the reverse of the summer course enrollment form.
      Required Credentials
      In addition to the summer application for courses and current college or professional school transcript*, each Global Fellowship applicant is required to submit (1) a brief essay (one page or less) describing the applicant’s education, research, and work experience background (a Curriculum Vitae does not take the place of this essay); (2) a brief statement of purpose, i.e., describing the applicant's reason for taking the course, how the applicant will be able to apply the training in his/her home country, the applicant's future goals; (3) a letter of recommendation from academic faculty or employer addressed to Dr. Larry Crowder; and (4) a Curriculum Vitae. All credentials may be posted (135 Duke Marine Lab Rd, Beaufort NC 28516, USA) or faxed (252-504-7648) to the attention of Debbie Pease or scanned and sent in Word or pdf form as an email attachment to drpease1@.... We do not offer guidelines about the information to be included in your reference letter. These letters typically include how the referee knows you, his/her opinions of your work together in the past, and thoughts about whether he/she feels you'd be well suited to this program.
      * If at all possible, a copy of the transcript is preferred. A scan (sent in Word or pdf form as an email attachment to drpease1@...) or fax (252-504-7648) to the attention of Debbie Pease, an unofficial version of the transcript is fine. If this is impossible, then please send a copy of your degree. An ordinary (non certified) translation of the transcript is fine.
      Due Date
      All Global Fellowship credentials must be received no later than March 1, 2010 by the admissions office of the Marine Laboratory. All fellowship applicants will be notified of their award status shortly after the deadline date.
