Climate Innovation Grants

These seed grants represent a key focus area within CBEY: climate innovation. Entrepreneurs and innovators have an increasingly critical role in helping to slow down, and maybe even reverse, the effects of climate change. This seed funding program aims to help unlock this potential and fulfill Yale’s commitment to building a more sustainable world.

Regenerative Agriculture Initiative: 2021-2022 Request for Proposals!

Students interested in agriculture have an exciting opportunity to build on the program’s success by exploring research questions that are important to them and by connecting with innovative practitioners. CBEY invites students to propose new project ideas to pursue in the coming year. Ideally, projects would begin in Fall 2 of this year (2021) and can continue for a full year (if needed) through the end of the Fall 2022 semester.
