Call for CNI & GFI Fellowship Applications

GFI Project Fellow:

The UCSB Sustainability office seeks applications from undergraduate students interested in creating and implementing their own project related to sustainable food systems, food security, healthy food systems, and/or food justice.  Student applicants will pitch their project idea in the application (below) and applications will be reviewed based on both the quality of the project idea and on the applicant themselves.  

GFI Ambassador:

The UCSB Sustainability office seeks applications from undergraduate students interested in: 

1) Increasing communication and collaboration between students and campus administration on food security, basic needs, and sustainable food systems issues.

and

2) Raising awareness about Food Security, Basic Needs, and Sustainable Healthy Food Systems programs, resources, issues, solutions, and policies. 

We are looking for students who are interested in uplifting the voices of our diverse student body and facilitating collaborations. This will include spending time meeting with student leaders and learning about their ideas, concerns, and suggested solutions.  As the ambassador learns about overlapping projects and interests between student organizations and/or campus departments they will facilitate introductions and/or help cultivate new partnerships. The ambassador will look for opportunities to share the student perspective and student project ideas/efforts with the campus administration and campus departments to help build support for student recommendations.  The ambassador will also keep students informed about what the campus is working on, resources available, and opportunities to give feedback on policy, budget, and program development related to food security, sustainable healthy food systems and basic needs, etc.  

The ambassador will also help with marketing and promotion of existing resources and programs. In particular we are interested in recruiting an ambassador with creative ideas on how to reach students most impacted by food security and/or who have historically been underrepresented and underrecognized within sustainable and healthy food systems initiatives.
