Position Title: Multiple Fellowships and Internships
Organization: Citizens Climate Higher Education
Organization Overview: Higher education is a large and powerful constituency that includes science and policy experts, community leaders, and young adults who will be most affected by climate change. Together they wield enormous intellectual, political, and economic capital. Citizens Climate believe that higher education’s role as creators and disseminators of knowledge, as well as its mission to educate responsible citizens, puts it in a unique and powerful position as an advocate for climate action.
The mission of Citizens’ Climate Higher Education is to empower students, educators, administrators, and others in higher education to build political will for carbon pricing legislation. Together, everyone can solve climate change.
Position Overview: Fellowships and internships with CCL are enriching learning experiences working with their expert staff and volunteer leaders. Their fellows and interns go onto top graduate schools and careers in environmental, political, or nonprofit fields. Fellowships are paid positions and internships are volunteer, with the exception of their legislative program (both internships and fellowships are paid). All work with CCL staff. Fellowships tend to go to students with more experience and education. Internships are usually 8 – 10 hours a week for a semester or 15 weeks.
Fellowships and internships at CCL are extremely competitive; last year they received over 500 applications for 20 positions. To increase your chances of acceptance and as an alternative, they strongly recommend that you participate in CCL’s Climate Advocacy Certificate Program the semester that you apply and also join CCL.
