Abbey Duncan Brownfields Scholarship Program

Named in honor of an avid environmentalist, talented dancer, and tireless community supporter, the Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is an annual program designed to provide financial support to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in the brownfield industry in New York City.  Brownfields are properties where redevelopment is complicated by the presence or potential presence of environmental contamination. The Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is administered by the NYC Brownfield Partnership, an association of member organizations involved in the brownfield industry in New York City.

Grants and Research Funding

The NYC Brownfield Partnership is dedicated to the revitalization of brownfield sites and the sustainable development of our local communities. In pursuit of this mission, we are pleased to announce our formal grant-giving process for the year 2024. We invite qualified organizations to submit proposals for grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 per year. At this time, we anticipate one (1) to three (3) grants per year, depending on available funds.

These grants aim to support research initiatives that advance the brownfield community, including policy and technical assistance, as well as community-based organizations working towards local workforce development, citizen science-based education, or community-based gardens.
