New Application Process for Innovation Fellowship Program

The Foundation is pleased to announce that applications to Metcalf’s Innovation Fellowship Program will now be accepted on a rolling intake basis.

The Metcalf Innovation Fellowship program provides critical thinkers with opportunities to address complex ecological, social, economic, and cultural issues. We believe fresh insights and true experimentation often happen on the edge of an issue, out beyond where organized and traditional efforts are being made. We create opportunities for this work to be developed, disseminated, and heard. This Fellowship gives individuals of vision and creativity – people with outstanding talent and originality – the freedom to pursue powerful ideas, models, or practices that have the potential to contribute to building a healthier, more resilient Canada.

Typically, Innovation Fellowships explore policy issues or systemic aspects in one or more of the Foundation’s three areas of interest: environment, inclusive local economies, and performing arts. Fellowships act as intellectual companions to our granting and program work, often directly informing program strategies.

Funding can be used to support costs associated with project activities; awards of up to a maximum of $30,000 will be made available. Awards are in the range of $15,000-$25,000.
