Campus as a Living Lab Information Session

3:02 pm – 5:03 pm

Wednesday, February 7, 2024 (3:02pm – 5:03pm)



The Sustainability Leadership Council and the Office of Sustainability are pleased to announce the launch of a new Campus as a Living Lab Program intended to support research and teaching that leverages JHU’s campuses as incubators for innovation to advance campus sustainability goals while developing outcomes that can inform solutions at the local, national, and global scale. As a global leader in research, this new program will support our institutional mission while enhancing sustainability education, knowledge, and campus practices. 

Grant funding will be available to support sustainability research and courses, aligning with the goals outlined in the JHU Climate Action and Sustainability Plan, being released this spring 2024. Seed grants will be open to students, researchers, and course instructors at all JHU schools and divisions to foster research and educational opportunities while testing scalable sustainability solutions on JHU campuses.  

Grants are available in three categories: 

Researcher Grants up to $50k to support research projects that yield outcomes relevant to advancing campus sustainability solutions led by any JHU researcher: faculty, research scientists, or post-docs.  


Instructor Grants up to $12k funding to course instructors to integrate applied campus sustainability projects into new or existing courses.    


Student Grants up to $10k to fund undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students to conduct research projects focused on campus sustainability.   

Grant applicants are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest form before April 10th so the program team may support applicants in connecting with university partners. Grant applications are due on May 31, 2024. 

For more information on the awards, grant eligibility, and criteria, including further details on how to apply, please visit sustainability.jhu.edu/livinglab
