|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 has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
The GSAS program by demonstration has shown that global cooperation is an effective means to foster new ideas and implement them globally. Being placed in a team with individuals of different scientific backgrounds in research was truly a great experience. The clarity and development of our concept in an intense environment helped displayed each member’s expertise and allowed us to see how different research can be and is conducted globally. I have gained a global perspective by interacting with the members of my team and through the mentors provided in this session.
What I appreciated most:
To me, the unique aspect of this global school [is that] it really prepares students to interact globally, to come up with new innovative ideas and to be really cooperative in the development of these ideas"
