Grant Opportunities


Next Call for Proposals will be announced in Spring 2020


The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice (Haury Program) invites your community and university partnerships to share your ideas to create a just and sustainable society as our future. We know that many University of Arizona and Community Partnerships are thinking about how to move the needle in building a stronger, more sustainable social fabric. We ask you to imagine what a socially just and sustainable Southwest will look like in 25 years and tell us your plans for projects that will work to make ideas reality.

Award Schedule Spring Fall

Challenge Grants: A challenge grant assembles a team to confront major challenges, often termed "wicked problems", at the nexus of environment and social justice to move the needle to create systematic and transformational changes. Up to $200,000 for up to 3 years for new or existing UA-community partnerships addressing complex challenges


Seed Grants: Seed grants are one-time or well-defined prototype or model projects for completion within 2 years, resulting in data, on-the-ground actions, and recommendations to support the longer-term efforts for systematic change. Awards up to 2 years for UA-community partnerships; $100,000/year divided among 2 to 4 grantees



Faculty Fellowships: Two-year appointments for early- to mid-career or changing-career UA faculty


Partnering Grants: Explore new partnership opportunities or hone existing partnerships for new endeavors. Build capacity in authentic partnering.
