Sarah Baker Memorial Fund

Sarah Baker Memorial Fund supports important student work in the Y2Y region.

Sarah Jocelyn Baker's appreciation for the natural world and ability to find solutions resonate with the aspirations and vision of Y2Y. We are honored to carry her spirit forward through the Sarah Baker Memorial Fund. Thanks to a gift from her extended family, Y2Y is able to offer grants to post-secondary students pursuing environmentally related studies in any post-secondary institution.

The Sarah Baker grants support student projects that advance Y2Y's conservation strategy and result in tangible benefits within the region. Besides the benefits they bring to the region and our organization, the knowledge and experience students acquire can enhance their resumes and further their careers.

2018 Call for Applications

Y2Y is pleased to announce funding for early-career researchers in Canadian and American post-secondary institutions to work on conservation-related projects that help advance Y2Y’s mission and vision. Up to $5,000 is available for the 2018/2019 funding cycle, awarded in mid-November 2018. Y2Y may, at its discretion, split the award among two or more recipients.
