Application open for the Friedman Family Visiting Professionals Program

Attention EERI Student Chapters! EERI is pleased to announce the launch of the Friedman Family Visiting Professionals Program for the 2019-2020 academic year. Generously funded by the Friedman family, the program matches professionals with host institutions, usually universities, for a workshop meant to be a part lecture and part informal discussion to foster better understanding and communications between earthquake practitioners and academics.

This year, the program will include a total of 20 visiting professionals. EERI Student Chapters must complete the application form here for a visit from a Friedman Family Visiting Professional. The application deadline is Monday, October 28, 2019. All chapters are encouraged to apply!

Review of Student Chapter requests will begin after the application closes. Universities will be notified of their match in mid-November. Depending on funding availability, approximately 20-25 trips will be funded for visits from January through May 2020. Learn more information about the Friedman Family Visiting Professionals program.
