Applications Extended until June 30, 2024

We support diverse, inclusive and equitable practices and approaches to environmental issues as we work toward meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples (self-identified and status First Nations, Métis & Inuit) of Turtle Island. We encourage applications from Indigenous students utilizing Indigenous and/or Western knowledge systems and methodologies.

We recognize that historical and present-day barriers exist that disadvantage Black, Indigenous, and other People of Colour (BIPOC) pursuing higher education. To support BIPOC graduate students making environmental contributions through science, art, and diverse inquiry, the Ages Foundation Fellowship includes a designated BIPOC award.

$15,000 will be distributed annually through this application process and awards will be given out in the following amounts: one (1) $5,000 award, one (1) $5,000 BIPOC award, and up to five (5) $1,000+ bursaries depending on the total number of outstanding applications received.
