New University-Wide Collaboration Grants on Climate Change
Duke University is offering faculty and research staff the first in a series of opportunities to shape a university-wide research agenda for confronting climate change.
The new grant program is part of the university’s broader effort to accelerate sustainable and equitable solutions to the climate crisis while developing the next generation of thought leaders. The climate initiative will build on Duke experts’ track record of substantial contributions to understanding and addressing climate change and its impacts.
Duke will provide funding up to $5,000 for faculty and staff who are interested in collaborating with colleagues—either within or across disciplines—around a shared intellectual interest that targets a climate-related challenge. Each selected group will also be able to propose an idea and to suggest speakers to include in one of several Duke-hosted climate symposia over the next few years. The symposia will engage Duke experts and invited partners in designing research priorities with linked external engagement and funding strategies.
Deadline: Feb. 18, 2022
Areas of Interest
Proposals should focus on one or more of the initiative’s priority areas:
- Energy Transformation
- Climate Resilience
- Natural Climate Solutions
