*SCOSTEP Visiting Scholarship – Call for Applications 2017*

From: Marianna Shepherd (mshepher[at]yorku.ca)

*The submission of applications for the 2017 SCOSTEP Visiting 
Scholarship is now open.*

The SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program is a capacity building 
activity of SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics), 
which complements the current scientific program, VarSITI (Variability 
of the Sun and its Terrestrial Impact, http://www.varsiti.org/) and 
SCOSTEP’s public outreach activities.

The objective of the SVS program is to provide training to young 
scientists and graduate students from developing countries in 
well-established solar terrestrial physics institutes, for one to three 
months. The training will help the young scientists to advance their 
career in solar terrestrial physics using the technique/skill they 
learned during the training. SCOSTEP will provide the airfare, while the 
host institute will provide the living expenses (accommodation, 
sustenance, ground transportation, visa fees and other incidentals). 
Trainees should have their own health insurance or arrange a provision 
with the host institution.

Interested candidates should contact one of the SVS program hosts listed 
at http://www.yorku.ca/scostep/?page_id=2103and work out the details of 
the visit. Once the applicant and the host agree on a visit, the 
applicant needs to prepare an application package including the 
following details of the visit: _/(i) work to be performed; (ii) 
applicant’s curriculum vitae, (iii) dates of the visit and an estimate 
of the airfare in economy class; (iv) letter from the applicant’s 
supervisor, and (v) a letter from the host scientist/institution/__._ A 
single pdf file of the above materials should be sent to SCOSTEP’s 
Scientific Secretary, Dr. Marianna G. Shepherd (mshepher[at]yorku.ca 
<mailto:mshepher at yorku.ca>)*. Deadline for applications: February 25,
