The 100k Strong North America Grant Competition to Expand Climate‑Action, Inclusive Education Exchanges

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on November 27, 2023 in Research Funding

This new, first 100K Strong North America Climate/IE competition supports the U.S. Department of State’s policy priorities to ensure a greener, more inclusive, prosperous, and climate-resilient Hemisphere through regional education cooperation, exchanges, and workforce development.

The higher education partnerships developed through this 100K Strong North America grant competition will expand trilateral collaboration among faculty and increase access to innovative, education exchange opportunities for teams of students to gain technical, linguistic, and intercultural skills imperative for workforce development.

For this 100K Strong North America CLIMA/IE competition, teams of higher education institutes (HEIs) between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are invited to submit proposals to show how they will use the 100K Strong funds to (1) design and carry out inclusive, climate-focused, student/faculty exchanges, both virtually and in-person; and (2) create opportunities for collaboration to support innovative, sustainable climate action projects (CAPs) that contribute solutions to regional climate challenges.

Grant proposals must include a tripartite team of at least one HEI in the U.S., one HEI in Canada, and one HEI in Mexico. Proposals can involve new partnerships or build on existing partnerships.

Proposed exchanges and programming must be carried out from May 1, 2024, to March 31, 2025.
