a sapling growing out of coins

In spring 2023, the School of Cities announced support grants to eight postdoctoral fellows at U of T undertaking research that aligns with our key themes of climate justice and belonging, migration and thriving.

With nearly $300,000 in grants, we aim to lift the work of emerging scholars and advance the research of our colleagues across disciplines.
