The Sustainability Scholars Program offers several events throughout the year. These events are intended to provide information about the Program, support students interested in applying to the Program, and to share the incredible work produced by the Scholars.

Information sessions

Attend an upcoming information session to learn more about the Summer 2023 program and how to apply. Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear from former program participants about what you can expect as a Scholar, and what opportunities the program offers in terms of skills development and job prospects.
