Two international science agencies have agreed to provide fellowships to students from developing countries to pursue doctoral programmes in climate change. Applications for the programme will be accepted later this year.
The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and World Meteorological Organization agreed on 27 March to provide ten PhD fellowships every year. Fellows will study and conduct their research in Brazil, China, India, Kenya, Malaysia or Pakistan.
Romain Murenzi, the executive director of TWAS, says the partnership is responding to the need for climate scientists in developing countries.
