David Suzuki Fellowships

The David Suzuki Fellowship program empowers emerging scholars to tackle complex environmental problems. It reduces financial barriers, provides mentorship and fosters leadership and creativity so fellows can conduct research and engage and inform the public and policy-makers.


Three fellowships are available. Each will be for one year and will consist of:

  • A $50,000 stipend, plus up to $5,000 for travel and other professional expenses
  • Mentorship from David Suzuki Foundation senior staff
  • Access to office space at any Foundation office

Research theme

For 2019-20, the overriding research theme is innovation and impact. The specific research idea should be connected to an issue the David Suzuki Foundation currently works on. We’re looking for scholars to share their brightest, most effective and creative ideas to solve our greatest environmental challenges.
