To Whom It May Concern:

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.

Mohamed Hilmi (Senior Coordinator & Technical Specialist for Shelter and Settlements at InterAction) has provided your organization’s contact information. They thought that you may have interested students or contacts and thus we wanted to provide you with the call for applications so you can distribute it within your network. If there are any other individuals whom you believe we should be in touch with, please let us know.

We appreciate your support in distributing this opportunity that aims to increase the awareness of the humanitarian shelter and settlements (S&S) sector in North America and expand career options for those interested in S&S sector activities.
