University Community Partnerships

University Community Partnerships

Mrs. Haury believed strongly in partnerships by which universities work with community programs and resources to achieve shared goals. True to that vision, the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice yearly provides two types of awards for initiatives that best leverage University of Arizona (UA) and community resources:

  • Challenge Grants of up to $200,000 for new or existing UA-community partnerships working on new initiatives to address complex challenges; awards are for periods of up to three years
  • Seed Grants to fund new or existing UA-community partnerships that start new initiatives; awards up to $100,000 are for a period of two years each (a total of $100,000 is divided among two to four recipients twice per year)

University-Community Partnerships encourage innovation in research, education and solution implementations that address and give voice to populations most vulnerable to environmental and social justice challenges.
