Calling on scholars for climate solutions

Are you a scholar who can help lead Canada to a low-carbon future? Do you know someone who is?

If so, here’s an exciting opportunity: David Suzuki Fellowships.

This new program will invest in leaders with the potential to follow in David Suzuki’s footsteps — bringing important new thinking to the public and inspiring action on complex environmental problems.

In 2017, the David Suzuki Foundation will offer three $50,000 fellowships to scholars with expertise in:

  • Clean energy solutions or the economics of sustainable development (based in Vancouver)
  • Climate solutions and traditional Indigenous knowledge (based in Toronto)
  • Transportation, energy and climate solutions (based in Montreal)

In addition to financial support, David Suzuki Fellows will spend a year working with the Foundation. They will complete a research project, collaborate with Foundation staff, and be mentored by David Suzuki and other leaders.

For information on eligibility, please visit the website. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2017.
