We foster professional development of a new generation of scientists, who represent the diversity of today’s society, in transdisciplinary sustainability science and innovation.
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.
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. George Mason University has partnered with GSS to support two Mason students in our inaugural cohort.
Early Career Steering Committee
A three year rotating commitment to advance the GSS program, provide programmatic direction and ensure that the program is grounded in experiences that prepare students and fellows with the resources they desire and need to make impact in the field of Sustainability.
Executive Advisory Board
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.
