Introducing the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Fellows Program

Summer 2021 and Academic Year 2021-2022

The Sustainable LA Grand Challenge (SLA GC) seeks passionate, innovative and highly motivated graduate students to work with UCLA faculty mentors in partnership with external partners to discover and co-develop sustainable interventions that center on improving equity, diversity and inclusion in the Los Angeles region. Please share this funding opportunity with all UCLA graduate students. 

This year’s external partners include:

City of L.A.’s Climate Emergency Mobilization Office
L.A. County Chief Sustainability Office
L.A. Metro Chief Sustainability Office and Office of Equity & Race

The Sustainable LA Grand Challenge Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Fellows Program is intended to support UCLA graduate students from any discipline. Project ideas may be as diverse as the disciplines from which they come, and we welcome ideas ranging from identifying and quantifying equity metrics, to an art piece, mural, play or poem focused on equity in urban sustainability — and everything in between. 

We anticipate funding up to three fellows. Black, Indigenous and People of Color, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, people with disabilities, members of ethnic minorities, foreign-born residents and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.

Fellows will help to advance regional sustainability goals and deepen SLA GC’s relationship with our external partners.
