Current ISI Value Fellow Angela de Oliveira was selected as a Fellow for the Nation Science Foundation-funded "Enabling the Next Generation of Hazards and Disasters Researchers Fellowship Program." According to de Oliveira, she discussed her ISI project in her application for the fellowship.
The program "foster[s] the development of hazards scholars who will expand and strengthen the interdisciplinary research community." The fellowship begins with a weekend meeting in February, where fellows will be introduced to interdisciplinary practices in the study of hazards and disasters, begin to formulate their goals for the program, and meet with mentors and fellows. The Annual Natural Hazards and Applications Workshop will be held in July at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
The program selects up to 20 fellows each year for the competitive program. More information about the program can be found on the Next Generation of Hazards and Disasters Researchers website.
