How To Apply

The selection committee will look for evidence of significant impact on climate action and gender equity. They will look for evidence of the project’s likelihood of success in supporting women involved in concrete science-based projects. You must clearly demonstrate how you aim to improve, through the promotion of women’s well-being, the livelihood of their entire community with specific reference to climate change.

The selection committee will look for applications with evidence of support, use, and/or delivery of science knowledge at the community level, promoting tangible change related to climate action. They will look for women scientists able to lead impactful projects in climate action that takes them outside the lab, and that support the capacity-building of other women and women scientists.

Your application will be assessed primarily based on the quality and feasibility of your project proposal, the evidence of your proposed impact on gender and climate change, and the nature of your collaborations with others. It will also be assessed based on evidence of your scientific merit.
