This program brings fellows from developing countries to UC Berkeley to build skills in conducting research that are policy-relevant for their own context abroad. CEGA holds a research grant competition each year for international fellows to collaborate with UC Berkeley faculty on research. This program provides new field research opportunities for faculty and PhD students, and facilitates institutional partnerships between UC Berkeley and the Global South. Program fellows have gone on to conduct their own successful research in their home countries and have remained close to the Berkeley network, fostering further research collaborations.
More information is available on the CEGA Global Networks website.
For UC Berkeley faculty and staff, more detailed information regarding the partnership and benefits to UC Berkeley is available here (via Google Drive, CalNet ID required).
