Institute at Brown for Environment and Society

Opportunities for Faculty

IBES offers seed funding opportunities to current Institute fellows, as well as grants for travel and other expenses. Brown faculty who are engaged in environmentally-related research may petition to become affiliated with IBES.

  • Regular Brown faculty who are interested in becoming an IBES fellow should follow the process to become an IBES Affiliate.
  • After spending one year or more engaged in Institute activities as an IBES Affiliate, faculty are eligible to be nominated as an IBES Elected fellow.

Please contact Interim Director of IBES Dov Sax for more information.

Application Deadline :

This opportunity is currently on hold, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

IBES competitively awards travel grants of up to $2,000 to IBES faculty fellows and to postdocs whose primary mentor is an IBES fellow. These travel grants are generally aimed at supporting travel to a conference where the applicant is presenting research or organizing a session, but other types of travel will be considered on a limited basis, as funding allows.

Application Deadline :

IBES Core and Elected Fellows are encouraged to apply for research funding to support environmental research. Proposals are sought for three different funding categories: Multi-Investigator Research Projects, Individual-Investigator Research Projects, and Working Groups.
