NASA-MSU Professional Enhancement Awards
Please share the following message with potentially interested students.

***

With support from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Michigan State University, NASA-MSU Professional Enhancement Awards (up to $700 each) are given to cover expenses associated with attending the conference of US-IALE (US Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology) in Anchorage, Alaska, during May 18-22, 2014 (http://www.usiale.org/sites/default/files/meetings/US-IALE_2014_FLYER.pdf).

Special consideration will be given to presentations related to telecoupling (environmental and socioeconomic interactions over distances, such as trade, water transfer, human and animal migration, species dispersal, species invasion, disease spread, and tourism). Topics may include any aspects of telecouplings, such as causes and effects of telecouplings on socioeconomic and ecological sustainability of coupled human and natural systems (CHANS).

For more information about telecoupling, please see papers http://csis.msu.edu/research/publications/framing-sustainability-telecoupled-world, http://csis.msu.edu/research/publications/integrated-assessments-payments-ecosystem-services-programs, and http://csis.msu.edu/telecoupling.

The application package includes a cover letter, application form, abstract (as it was submitted to the US-IALE conference, www.usiale.org), resume/CV, and budget. Applications are judged based on the merits of the applicants' abstracts, financial needs, and professional backgrounds and goals. Former award recipients are not eligible to apply. Underrepresented students are especially encouraged to apply. Application deadline is January 20, 2014.

More information (including the application form) about the NASA-MSU Program is available at the web site http://csis.msu.edu/education/nasa_msu_award. Questions can be directed to:
