Funding – David Suzuki Fellowship program, Due: Feb 1, 2017

Posted on Updated on

 

The new David Suzuki Fellowship program will empower emerging scholars to tackle complex environmental problems. It will reduce financial barriers, provide mentorship and foster leadership and creativity so fellows can conduct research and engage and inform the public and policy-makers. One fellowship each will be available in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. The Vancouver-based fellow will join the Foundation’s Science and Policy team and research innovative clean energy solutions and/or the economics of sustainable development.

Each fellowship is valued at $50,000 stipend plus up to $5,000 in travel and professional expenses.

For details about eligibility, program structure, and application process, please see http://fellowships.davidsuzuki.org/
