Under the supervision of AGSC Associate Director Dr. Sebnem Ozkan, the GRA will conduct research and support efforts to develop a funding proposal related to Global Studies, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The proposal will focus on collecting and telling stories about local-global connections, particularly around sustainability initiatives in Atlanta’s global communities, with a possible focus on Clarkston. The position emphasizes identifying opportunities for partnerships, collaboration, and interaction that can lead to external funding from public and private sources that will benefit GT students and community partners. This involves collaborating on and supporting the acquisition of grants, including inventorying opportunities, coordinating efforts, developing project proposals, and constructing a budget. 

These efforts will support AGSC and SLS involvement in the RCE Greater Atlanta Higher Education Work Group.
