Faculty Fellowships in Sustainability

The John C. Mascaro and Len Peters Faculty Fellowships in Sustainability encourage contributions to intra- and inter-disciplinary research while also helping faculty to team-teach sustainability courses as part of the University’s undergraduate sustainability certificate and MS in Sustainable Engineering. Faculty members from all disciplines across the University of Pittsburgh are encouraged to apply.

John C. Mascaro Faculty Fellowships

John C. Mascaro Faculty Fellowships provide support for faculty seeking to broaden sustainability at the University level (across schools and disciplines) and or in partnership with significant external stakeholders. Faculty interested in the fellowship should demonstrate how their proposal will support or expand university-wide sustainability education programs and or catalyze growth in the University’s sustainability research portfolio.

These include national and international partners anywhere in the world, from either inside or outside of higher education, working in areas that strongly align with UN Sustainable Development Goals.
