David Suzuki Foundation Fellowship Program

Nov 30 2017

 

At the present time, we are seeking applicants to be considered for one of

three fellowships that we have available across the country.  More specifically, we

are seeking graduate students whose research is focused on climate change solutions

including climate change adaptation, communications and indigenous knowledge.   I

was hoping to speak with you more about the program, and inquire if there are any

students in your faculty that you think might be a good fit for the program.

 

Below is a short description of the program, including relevant links that have more

information. In addition, should you have any further inquiries, please feel free to

contact me, or my colleague Harpreet Johal, (Senior Specialist, Fellowships), at:
