EWS-WWF partner The Sustainable City in Dubai announces a new Doctoral Fellowship programme in Sustainability Studies at the University of California, Davis.

The fellowship programme will provide promising young researchers from the Arab region the opportunity to undertake doctoral graduate studies and research at the University of California, Davis, one of the leading research universities in the world.  The fellowships, which are based on merit, will be made available to selected students from the Arab region. Fellowships cover all tuition and fees costs for four years of the PhD programme. Cost of living support will be available on a financial need basis. Students will also have the option to carry out part of their research at The Sustainable City in Dubai.

The programme supports the United Nations ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDG) and the COP21 Paris Agreement by developing leading researchers, teachers and practitioners in sustainability fields in the Arab region. The fellowships are a critical part of the work of the Diamond Innovation Center based in The Sustainable City in Dubai, which will build and spread knowledge on all aspects of sustainability and the built environment.
