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:
Do you know a scholar interested in helping Canada transition to a low-carbon future?

Three $50,000 (plus $5,000 for travel and professional development) fellowships are
- Climate change communications: The role of climate change communications
to ignite the movement toward a lower-carbon future
- Indigenous knowledge and climate change: Integrating traditional
Indigenous knowledge into climate change solutions
- Climate change adaptation and cities: Researching climate change
adaptation and the development of sustainable cities
David Suzuki Fellows will spend a year with one foot in academia and the other in
learning strategies to get their research the attention it deserves. They’ll make
complex issues easy to understand and help motivate people to take action.
Foundation senior staff and David Suzuki will mentor them all!
