The Net Zero Fellowship aims to address potential barriers to the widespread adoption of net-zero design and to grow the community constructing these remarkable buildings. We will award a fellowship grant of up to $50,000 to support research over 12 to 18 months.

The Fellowship is open to individuals and companies with a well-defined proposal and a demonstrated ability to deliver. Possible topics may include technical research, economic benefits, market barriers and community-based net-zero projects.
