Who qualifies as a research student?

Somebody who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate, Honors, Masters or PhD degree at an academic institution, OR somebody who has very recently finished such a degree (within 2014). Only research performed as part of the aforementioned degrees is acceptable.

**Please note the change above. We have altered this condition, acknowledging that budding young researchers may have recently commenced work in climate and health, that was not part of their degree.


What constitutes climate and health research?

Any original contributions to scientific knowledge about the relationships between climate and health — this may include: basic and translational research; clinical research; epidemiology and prevention research; social and political research, law, policy and human rights; implementation research, economics, systems, and synergies with other health and development sectors.
