The Sustainable Infrastructure Fellowship Program, offered through Schulich’s Brookfield Centre in Real Estate and Infrastructure, announced that it has launched recruiting for the third year of the program.

Created in 2018 as a G7 initiative by the Investor Leadership Network (ILN) in collaboration with Schulich School of Business and with support from the Government of Canada, the Fellowship offers applied skills and knowledge in an academic setting for senior public sector infrastructure managers from emerging markets. The ILN and Global Infrastructure Hub, an initiative of the G20, are sponsors of the fellowship program.

This year’s program is expected to attract upward of 30 participants from across the globe. Tuition costs for the program are covered by the Investor Leadership Network, which is comprised of 13 global institutional investors representing six countries, with more than $9 trillion USD in assets under management.

The Fellowship was established in response to the growing need for sustainable infrastructure as set out in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and the growing interest of large institutional investors in investing in sustainable infrastructure in emerging economies.

“The Fellowship is an unmatched opportunity to interact with some of the largest global investors in infrastructure and learn directly from them how they make their investment decisions,” said James McKellar, professor of real estate and infrastructure at Schulich.

The program runs June to December, and upon completion, Fellows are awarded the globally recognized Schulich School of Business, Master’s Certificate in Sustainable Infrastructure Development and Finance, from York University.
