> Dear Scholar,
> I am writing to you with some information about a unique opportunity in
the 2015-16 Fulbright Scholar Program in Finland that I thought might
especially appeal to someone with your background and interests. My
organization, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars,
administers the Fulbright Scholar Program on behalf of the United States
Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Please feel
free to forward this message to other interested colleagues and share
through relevant associations and listservs.
> The Fulbright-VTT Grant in Science, Technology and Innovation in Finland
is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to research within the area of biological
sciences, with particular emphasis on the fields of biomass. The selected
candidate will conduct research with colleagues at VTT Technical Research
Center of Finland, one of the leading research centers in Northern Europe.
Applications are sought in all appropriate disciplines, but applications in
biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, engineering and
environmental sciences are preferred. The award is open to candidates with
a PhD, but candidates with an MSc degree and strong expertise in their
field as well as professionals with a minimum of five years of experience
in the field may also be considered. A complete list of application
requirements can be found here in the catalog of awards.
> If your interests lie in other parts of the world, we offer grants in
every world region. For further awards in the field of Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), please visit our new Opportunities in
STEM webpage. There you will find award highlights and examples of
successful projects in the discipline. Additionally, All Disciplines awards
are offered in many countries, which allow scholars in all fields of study
to apply. I would encourage you to explore the Catalog of Awards for more
information about the awards available; award descriptions contain details
