|Team Research Fellowships|
After each GSAS Session, the Global Research Team with the most promising Global Research Project is awarded a Team Research Fellowship to implement their project at a GSAS host institution.
Members of the winning team are hired by a GSAS host institution for a year or more, depending on the requirements of their projects. Fellowships are team-based.
The winning team from the Taiwan Solar Cell Session (below) has members from Japan, South Africa,Taiwan, the Philippines and the United States. Their Winning Research Project – “A More Efficient Architecture for the Sensitization of TiO2 for dye-sensitized Solar Cells” - was selected for implementation at the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) Taiwan.
Scholars from the Sydney Solar Cell Session (shown below with their mentors) implemented their research at Northwestern University. This team includes members from Australia, Taiwan, and the United States.
The winning project(s) from the 2011 Session on Graphene Fundamentals and Applications will be hosted by CEA laboratories on the GIANT Innovation Campus in Grenoble, France. Learn more.
How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
It became evident how much of the scientific process is really about thinking. Taking someone else's work, which is new to me, and then combining that with what I know of my own work, which I know very well, and trying to balance that disparity in knowledge to come out with a collaborative effort. This was a difficult exercise, but I believe it was very beneficial, especially because it forced me to think of my project in a new way.
How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
The Session has encouraged me to keep thinking about my own research from new and different angles...and take into account the capabilities and facilities that different labs bring to the table.
What I appreciated most:
" This global school is an excellent program to encourage students and grow leaders. Previously my institute focused only on growing engineers. But nowadays, student ability is increasing, and we want to grow researchers and leaders. GSAS is a very attractive program."
