Apply to work with the Reach Alliance

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.  Applications are now open for U of T undergraduate, graduate and PhD students enrolled for 2022-23 academic year.

Join a global network of diverse, talented leaders with a shared passion for understanding how to reach those that are hardest to reach. Often described as a challenging, yet rewarding, experience, Reach student teams conduct rigorous research and author a case study about how to reach those who are hardest to reach. The actionable insights derived from the research catalyze action and accelerate achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. 

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. 

As a Reach researcher you will: 

  • Develop leadership skills 
  • Work in interdisciplinary teams
  • Gain hands-on experience in research design and analysis
  • Carry out field research in a global context
  • Work with faculty mentors and a performance coach
