The Walton Sustainability Fellowship Program supports two different kinds of fellowships:  Leaders in Sustainability Practice and Leaders in Science and Scholarship.

These fellowships support both resident and itinerant fellows to work at Arizona State University and other universities to address urgent sustainability challenges and to solve them. Walton Fellows are selected for their ability to work collaboratively across borders and disciplines to make extraordinary contributions to sustainability solutions through teaching, research or application.

Walton Fellows are selected from anywhere in the world and from any discipline or employment sector:

  • business
  • government
  • non-governmental organizations
  • universities
  • public or nonprofit research institutions

Fellows share a common purpose: to understand, address and solve sustainability problems through research, innovation and scholarship.

Fellows accelerate global sustainability solutions by engaging with sustainability scientists, faculty and students involved in other Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives and leveraging the power of their shared discoveries. Over time, they will create a network of collaborating colleagues that circles the globe.
