Addressing our long-term environmental challenges requires academic research funding today
SAN DIEGO December 19, 2017
The SEAL Awards has announced the opening of its 2018 Environmental Research Grant program.
“Addressing our long-term environmental challenges requires academic research funding today,” said Matt Harney, Founder of the SEAL Awards. “Funding environmental research is a foundational element of our organization. As such, we are contributing 100% of the proceeds raised by our 2017 business sustainability awards to this initiative. We hope to add extra value by focusing our grants on early career environmental researchers who are particularly underfunded.”
In 2017 SEAL awarded grants to 8 researchers across a broad range of subjects, including forest carbon offsets, carbon capture through salt marshes, corporate greenhouse gases, the politics of environmental policy, and the public health impacts of climate change. Institutions represented included Harvard, Marine Conservation Institute, MIT, and UCLA.
In order to maximize the visibility of the grant program among environmental researchers, the SEAL Awards has again partnered with Instrumentl, the leading grant funding and application platform, to manage the application process.
