Professor Tonya Kuhl has been selected to take part in the 2017 Faculty Fellowship Summer Institute in Israel.
The Faculty Fellowship Summer Institute in Israel is a competitive academic fellowship that invites full-time university and college faculty members to apply to participate in a two-week Summer Fellowship in Israel.
The fully-paid, intensive program links scholars from diverse disciplines with their Israeli counterparts at major institutions for the purpose of initiating exchanges and collaborations. The academics will also meet with professionals and experts involved in government, industry, education, media, and other sectors to understand the many facets of Israel's evolving national and international policies. Those who take part will gain a deeper awareness of Israel as a ‘start-up-nation,’ its success in water innovation, and how the country addresses regional and global challenges.
Kuhl will join 25 other participants who will spend 11 rigorous days from June 1 - 14 traveling throughout Israel, meeting Israeli professors from their respective disciplines and with the same or similar research interests, all with the goal of developing collaborations, research projects, co-authoring articles and establishing exchange programs between faculty and students.
