The Hugh Morris Fellowship supports a graduate student at a Canadian University to undertake a program of self-guided travel and experiential learning for studies related to earth, geology, environment, water, alternative energy, climate change, sustainability, or the social impact, social sciences or design sciences concerned with earth, sustainability or environmental issues.


January 31 




  • Must be registered in a Canadian university and studying one of the following fields:
    • earth or geological sciences
    • water sciences
    • alternative energy sciences
    • climate change
    • sustainability
    • environmental studies, including either life, design, or engineering sciences
    • social impact assessment of any of the above areas
    • social sciences concerned with any of the above areas, or
    • design sciences concerned with any of the above areas

The Experiential Learning Program is a detailed description of the planned travel, site visits, industrial engagements, research laboratory visits and / or other activities tied to a clear statement of objectives. It will include a robust rationale and a statement of objectives and activities for the fellowship period. There are no prescriptions for the nature of the ELP. However, the overall program must include engagement with more than one sector (industry, research, government, community). Notably, the Hugh C. Morris Experiential Learning Fellowship is intended  not to duplicate or be similar to existing graduate travel or visiting research grants to spend time at a single other university and such a proposed program would not be successful in this competition.
