Inspire and empower students in the themes of Climate, Biodiversity, Resilient Communities and the Circular Economy.

The funding supports curriculum development centred on transformative learning that incorporates experiential, applied and/or interdisciplinary sustainability education principles. We encourage applications that look to inspire and empower students in the themes of Climate, Biodiversity, Resilient Communities and the Circular Economy.

Two funding options

  • 2-year grants for a maximum of $10,000 per year for new courses or programs that involve interdisciplinary teams of faculty members from different departments or across campus (minimum two faculty members involved).
     
  • 1-year grants for a maximum of $5,000 for updating existing courses or programs (minimum one faculty member involved)

By accepting the grant, you commit to becoming a Sustainability Fellow for the period for which the grant was awarded.

You will meet once or twice a month (to be determined) throughout the academic year with other Sustainability Fellows to report on your project progress, share ideas and collaborate on emergent projects. Sustainability Fellows are viewed as champions for sustainability within their departments.
