Student Opportunities

Graduate Fellowships and Associate Positions

Through the Urban Resilience to Extreme Events (NSF SRN) and the Resilient Urban Latin America (NSF IRES), we are offering three exciting research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to conduct eight to ten weeks of onsite research in a Latin American, urban community facing climate extremes.

What is covered: Airfare or other transportation to and from the host city, housing, and board will be covered for the duration of the fellowship. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $500 per week, plus an additional $1,000 toward research expenses.

Please review the attached flyer for testimonials from graduate student and a postdoc on their research in Hermosillo, Mexico. Review the project timeline below, and access the IRES call for proposals and applications available on the UREx SRN Opportunities page.

Please share widely to interested graduate students at Georgia State University (open to all programs) as well as potential new students who may be applying to our programs.
