Environmental Fellows Program fellowships

The Environmental Fellows Program supports career development of a new generation of environmental leaders and decision makers in environmental fields and environmental philanthropy. The Environmental Fellows Program places accepted students in one of their current supporting foundations for a paid, 12-week (approximately 32 hours per week) fellowship program. Programs run from May to August.

Most Fellows are placed with one a partner philanthropic organization, while some may have the opportunity to be placed in an NGO funded by a partner. Current partner foundations and organizations include, but are not limited to, the Environmental Grantmakers Association and their member organizations. Current placement locations are in Michigan, New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, and San Francisco/Oakland. Other locations TBA. We may also place Fellows in a partner’s grantee organization. Fellows will build new skills and expand social networks that enhance their career portfolios through on-site mentoring, pre-program career development and diversity workshops and by attending the annual Environmental Grantmakers Association retreat. Through these experiences Fellows will expand their understanding of the research and decision making processes that guide foundation giving.
