Reach Alliance | Call for Applications for Transformative Global Research & Leadership Opportunity

Interested in developing research and leadership skills to lead change for a sustainable future?

The Reach Alliance is a student-driven, faculty-mentored research and leadership initiative examining how critical interventions and innovations reach those who are the hardest to reach: those living in extreme poverty, the geographically remote, administratively invisible and marginalized. Reach Alliance Researcher applications close Sunday, February 12, 2023 at 11:59 PM. All full-time undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, including incomingstudents for 2023-24 academic year, across U of T’s three campuses are eligible to apply.

Join an international network of multidisciplinary student and faculty researchers investigating complex global challenges and addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the Reach Alliance!

Students gain skills and experience via working with world class faculty mentors, performance coaches, top students from across the university and through a curated professional skills development series. These skills equip students, propelling them into the next phase of their career, whether further studies or professional.

  • Work on an interdisciplinary team to publish a case study report
  • Develop and practice real world leadership skills
  • Gain hands-on experience in research design and data analysis
  • Conduct field research in a global context
  • Receive mentorship and coaching from leading U of T faculty mentors and professional performance coaches
