AASHE is pleased to offer scholarships for those in need of financial assistance to attend the Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (GCSHE).

We realize these are challenging times within higher education and we hope this scholarship program will enable greater participation in the conference.

*The deadline for Scholarship Applications was August 31 and applications are no longer being accepted. 

What the Scholarship Covers

Scholarship recipients will receive up to the cost of a full conference registration (valued at up to US$125 for students and US$300 for regular attendees). Recipients will be notified ahead of the conference. 

Who’s Eligible to Apply?

Any individual is welcome to apply. In an effort to increase the diversity of attendees and perspectives, priority will be given to attendees, presenters and students of color. We especially welcome applications from individuals associated with minority-serving institutions. Please use a separate application for each person applying. 

Who is NOT Eligible?

The same person may not be awarded a scholarship two years in a row. In addition, attendees, presenters and students affiliated with Host Institutions are not eligible for scholarships, as their registration fees are already covered under the Host Institution sponsorship. Please contact Heather Lynch with questions related to Host Institutions.

Judging Criteria

Scholarship applications will be evaluated based on:

  • Financial need
  • Commitment to higher education sustainability
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Application readability, grammar and punctuation
