What the fellow says:

"After finishing my MSc, I sought opportunities to complete my studies in the field of environmental sciences, and the UNESCO/Japan Research Fellowship was the perfect solution. The fellowship completely supported me as a visiting researcher at Arizona State University for six months. My experience as a UNESCO fellow in Arizona (United States of America) has completely changed my social and academic life by creating new ways and viewpoints for interacting in different ways with society in the United States of America. The fellowship period, from March 2011 to September 2011, was spent most rewardingly in Tempe, Arizona, where I gathered as many resources as possible from the various libraries on campus in order to hone my research interest. I consider myself lucky because I had many opportunities to be in direct contact with a diverse group of international scholars who were already working professionally in that area, thus enabling me to bring their past experience to my home country. Furthermore, I improved my knowledge of current world situations and of education system dynamics in developed countries such as the United States of America."
