Call for Applications: Earth Leadership Program 2021


Deadline: 29 May 2020


The Earth Leadership Program builds on 20 years of experience pioneered by the Leopold Leadership Program.  Now, as a program of Future Earth, we will embed this work within a broader international context. Future Earth works with a global network of scientists, researchers, and innovators to champion many kinds of transdisciplinary research and engaged science that will be needed to support rapid transformations towards sustainability. Bold, connected, engaged science leaders will be critical to this work. The Earth Leadership Program is committed to extending and expanding the work of the Leopold Leadership Program by relaunching the North American cohort, and by working with our partners to develop additional regional cohorts in other parts of the world.


As a program of Future Earth, the Earth Leadership Program will build and connect a network of regional programs, each supporting a growing community of exceptional, engaged academics dedicated to collective leadership and transdisciplinary research. To do so, we will build on and scale the models, training, and impact that the Leopold Leadership Program pioneered during the past 20 years. With support from the David and Lucille Packard Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, we are relaunching the North American cohorts that were the focus of the Leopold Leadership Program and are working with our partners around the world to establish additional regional cohorts. 

Eligibility Requirements  

Yes, we are seeking applicants who are mid-career, academic researchers who focus on environmental and sustainability issues.
