External Award: The Kimberley Foundation Funding

September 26, 2018

The Kimberley Foundation is offering two new funding opportunities: one for Graduate level students - the Hugh C. Morris Experiential Fellowship, and one for students of any level, the Focus! Climate Change Student Video Contest.

The Hugh C. Morris Experiential Fellowship
Application Deadline: 4:00 pm PST on January 14, 2019
Funding Amount: Up to a maximum of $40,000 Cdn.
Student Type: Masters and PhD Students

The Hugh C. Morris Experiential Fellowship is designed to commemorate the life work and contributions to the fields of Geosciences, Climate Change, and Mathematics in Canada by Dr. Hugh C. Morris. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Chair of the Canadian Global Change Program and Recipient of the J. Willis Ambrose Gold Medal for leadership by the Geological Association of Canada, to name just a few of his many achievements. This new Fellowship, valued at $40,000 Cdn, is open to any graduate student studying in Canada who is working in a field related to earth, geosciences, environment, energy, water, climate change, social impact or design sciences related to these areas, and is designed to provide a unique experiential travel program designed by the student. Application forms are available on our website.

The Focus! Climate Change Student Video Contest
Deadline for Video Entries: 4:30 pm PST on March 4, 2019
Student Type: Students at all levels
Funding Amount

  • 1 Grand Prize of $7,500 (Cdn)
  • 1 Second Prize of $5,000 (Cdn)

The contest invites students to use their imagination and video-making skills, to make a short form video or digital media production about climate change. Full details are available on their website. The Kimberley Foundation has improved the competition to better recognize the excellent filmmaking talents of post-secondary students and to substantively differentiate this competition from a parallel contest for secondary students.  The post-secondary competition allows for productions of up to 10 minutes excluding title sequences and credits. Great prizes can be won ($7,500 for 1st prize, $5,000 for 2nd prize) as well as public screening of the winning films in filming (a trip to which the winners receive as an added part of their overall prize package).
