All climate change topics are of interest. Examples might include changing water, extreme weather, oceanic life, food scarcity, traditional relationships with nature, species diversity, energy supplies, clean technology, social impacts, changing economies, or shared solutions.

The Experiential Learning Program is a detailed description of the planned travel, site visits, industrial engagements, research laboratory visits and / or other activities tied to a clear statement of objectives. It will include a robust rationale and a statement of objectives and activities for the fellowship period. There are no prescriptions for the nature of the ELP. However, the overall program must include engagement with more than one sector (industry, research, government, community). Notably, the Hugh C. Morris Experiential Learning Fellowship is intended  not to duplicate or be similar to existing graduate travel or visiting research grants to spend time at a single other university and such a proposed program would not be successful in this competition.
