Our PhD students, the Grantham Scholars conduct cross-cutting sustainability research at the University of Sheffield. From earthworms to entropy, from plant pathogens to portable pumps, the Scholars work across an impressive range of topics. And all of their research works towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Moreover, we provide the Scholars bespoke training and expert support. As a result, Grantham Scholars know how to get things done with their research.
Because they work across subjects, the Scholars create unique multidisciplinary research that examines issues from many points of view. Also, many of our Scholars originate from, or work in, the ‘developing world’. As a result, the Scholars are part of a two-way flow of sustainability knowledge and practice. The Scholars regularly share their expertise through blogs, interviews and opinion.
This combination of training, research and experience means the Scholars are ready to tackle the challenges of a sustainable future well before they graduate. And after they graduate, they go on to do great things. You can check out our latest annual review to find out more – read The Story Continues.
