The Resilience and Adaptation Program (RAP), an Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) program, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks invites applications for PhD and masters studies, starting in autumn of 2008. RAP trains scholars, policy-makers, community leaders, and managers to address issues of sustainability in an integrated fashion. The program focuses on global-to-local interactions, preparing students to address a major global challenge - sustaining the desirable features of Earth's socio-ecological systems at a time of rapid change. Students of RAP take their degrees in Biology and Wildlife, Natural Resource Management, Resource Economics, and Anthropology.
Two-year fellowships of $30,000 per year with an international travel stipend are available to US citizens. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with review beginning in late March 2008. For further information and to apply, please visit their site
