Environment Initiative

In June 2000, the Luce Foundation announced a $30 million initiative in the environment, designed to enhance the quality of academic training and research on the environment at small liberal arts colleges and large research universities, and to support ground-breaking projects of environmental organizations that held promise for solving specific problems.

Between the initiative’s launch and 2012, the foundation approved 77 grants ranging from $1,000 to $1.6 million. These grants have reached 35 American colleges and universities, and 32 non-governmental organizations. Grants in higher education supported interdisciplinary programs, international exchanges, participatory and empirical teaching, and training in environmental management. Grants to environmental organizations focused on large-scale global systems, science-driven public policy, sustainable development, and biodiversity and natural resource management.

With the grants approved in March of 2007, the foundation reached its goal of $30 million, and celebrated the successful completion of the initiative.
