On behalf of Habitat for Humanity International, I wanted to share the call for applications for the “2018 USAID/OFDA Graduate Student Fellowships in Humanitarian Shelter and Settlements”.  For three consecutive years, this fellowship opportunity for graduate students is possible through a partnership between Habitat for Humanity International and USAID/ OFDA.

The fellowship seeks to support the thesis or professional report writing efforts of two Fellows during the summer of 2018, with a focus on shelter and settlements in humanitarian settings.

Fellows will be graduate students currently enrolled full-time in accredited North American graduate school programs or North Americans studying abroad in similar graduate programs, in the following disciplines City, Urban, Environmental, or Regional Planning; Architecture or Architectural Engineering; or Civil/ Environmental Engineering.  There is a tight turnaround time for applicants as the deadline for submitting applications for the fellowship is 5:00PM EDT, Wednesday, 30th May 2018.
