Program Description

GEH LAB offers a unique research and capacity-building program for graduate students and professionals. There are 3 phases to the program:

1. Preparation (e.g. research development, pre-departure training, logistics and travel planning); 

2. Field Training, 3 weeks in selected country (e.g. engaging with local professors, teaching, research); 

3. Dissemination (e.g. presentation and publication).

We Invest in You!

This program is designed to not only build capacity for our local partners at universities, but to build the capacity of all participants.  If you participate fully in the research and writing activities of this program, GEH LAB can help you submit your work for presentation and publication, and build your CV. The program encompasses much more than the weeks we spend in the field as the projects and collaborations are ongoing.  Although it is not required, all of our past participants have worked with GEH LAB for at least 6 months.
