Mercury is one of the most toxic and persistent heavy metal pollutants known, yet it is used in myriad products and production processes. Garfield Foundation grants focus on comprehensive source reduction to end the intentional use of mercury, eliminating exposure to and toxicity resulting from mercury pollution.
Projects supported under the Mercury Source Reduction grants ...
In 2050, approximately half of the U.S. building stock will consist of buildings that exist today. Considering that buildings contribute to nearly 40% of our country's carbon emissions, which runs up costs and compounds environmental problems, we know that improving the efficiency of the existing building stock is critical.
We seek to increase the efficiency of new and existing buildings, as well as the appliances that go in them. We provide support and leadership to a growing network of advocates dedicated to making our daily lives more efficient and affordable.
New technologies and fuels have the potential to slash transportation oil use, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Improvements to conventional vehicles?including better engines and transmissions and strong, lightweight materials?can make cars and trucks cleaner while saving drivers money at the pump.
The Climate Program seeks to build support for effective policies that would put a price on carbon and help us avoid the most serious impacts of climate change.
With assets over $2 billion at December 31, 2013, the Richard King Mellon Foundation has built on the vision of these founders. The Foundation?s current giving priorities primarily serve Southwestern Pennsylvania with a program focus on Regional Economic Development and Conservation, along with Education and Human Services and Nonprofit Capacity Building. The Foundation gives first ...
We support ways to make it easier to get local, sustainably produced food from our farms to the markets closest to where it's grown, and to better connect food producers and consumers.
We will achieve these goals by breaking barriers that are currently slowing the field and catalyzing new science through changes in paradigms and advances in technology.
The Training Program in Environmental Health Statistics prepares pre-doctoral and postdoctoral fellows for research careers in the application of biostatistics to environmental health.
Seabirds and shorebirds, some of the most threatened animals on Earth, are dependent upon and contribute to robust ocean and coastal ecosystems. Invasive predators on seabird islands reduce their breeding success. Endangered seabirds, like albatrosses and petrels, are caught inadvertently in fishing gear on the high seas.
Our geographical focus will be on three regions: the Great Lakes of East Central Africa, the Greater Mekong and its headwaters, and the watersheds of the Andes. Each is a place of high biodiversity, important freshwater service, and carbon-storage value.
Forests, prairies, and wetlands, which absorb and store a significant amount of greenhouse gasses, are being converted into cropland at high rates to meet the growing demand for food and fuel worldwide. The twin forces of global deforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices are responsible for an estimated 25 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
The goal of the New Investigator Research Grants is to provide research support for innovative basic scientists in Pennsylvania as they transition into an academic position as a new independent investigator. Proposals are required to address basic (fundamental, pure) questions addressing core principles in biology, physics and chemistry or at the disciplinary boundaries between these fields.
From the natural sciences to the social sciences to the humanities to the arts, the availability of more data and cheaper computing is transforming research. As costs for sensors, sequencing, and other forms of data collection decline, researchers can generate data at greater and greater scale, relying on parallel increases in computational power to make sense of it all and allowing the ...
The shift to digitally-mediated forms of scholarship has been characterized by a substantial growth in channels for and diversity of scholarly work.
In the past decade, the Foundation has directed more than 20% of its giving to environmental related causes, with funding focused primarily on support for The Nature Conservancy of Utah and The Nature Conservancy of Oregon. These grants have been directed primarily toward land acquisition and/or retirement of grazing rights in critical habitats within both of these states. In addition, ...
The International Science Engagement program is an early stage program currently focused on South Asia that seeks to bring scientists and engineers in conflict regions together to collaborate on subjects and projects of mutual interest.
Applicant should have a Bachelors Degree in Environmental and Marine Sciences or related fields.
Established in 2008, the Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award in Sun-Earth Systems Science is given annually to one early career scientist (within seven years of the award of Ph.D.
Maritime grants provide funding support to non-profit organizations in the Philadelphia, Delaware River, area for maritime educational activities designed to: preserve historic maritime resources, increase public awareness, develop an appreciation for the maritime heritage of Philadelphia, or teach basic or advanced maritime skills.
