Our Mission

We foster professional development of a new generation of scientists, who represent the diversity of today’s society, in transdisciplinary sustainability science and innovation. 

Our Approach

We have run two synergistic programs that serve underrepresented groups in sustainability STEM, the Global Sustainability Scholars program serving undergraduates, Global Sustainability Scholar Early Career Fellows which serves graduate students and professionals who have graduated in the past 3 years.

Our Partners

This program is made possible by National Science Foundation Funding and through close collaboration with Future Earth. Our program is based at University of Colorado Boulder. This collaboration enables GSS cohorts to work with Future Earth / Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action (CRA) Project Teams on a common set of core sustainability research challenges related to food/energy/water security, ocean health, and biodiversity and other sustainability challenges

Support our students! All donations directly support Global Sustainability Scholars and Fellows. Successful global sustainability solutions are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Our program does just that, brings in the voices and perspectives across borders and cultures, trains them in doing trans-disciplinary research and builds their international professional network.
