Apply now to the Student Energy fellowship program to be held virtually.
Student Energy Fellowship program is done to improve the world’s energy. To meet the world’s emissions reduction targets, address the climate crisis, and implement low carbon technologies, we need a capable and diverse workforce motivated to accelerate the energy transition. Student Energy Fellows will guide you through an experiential learning program designed to provide you with leadership and project skills training, energy knowledge, connections to global leaders, young professionals, global influencers in energy, connect you to a global cohort of fellows committed to working with communities, government and business, and help prepare you to tackle our world’s biggest challenges to accelerate climate action.
The 10-month virtual program consists of peer learning, project and leadership skills development, mentoring sessions on how to break into energy careers, and networking with fellows from around the world. All this is paired with a chance to implement your learnings and make an impact through a project. With a team or individually, you will brainstorm, design, and implement a project that combines your passion with the knowledge and skills you gain through the specialized Student Energy Fellowship coursework. Your project is an opportunity to pursue your interests, develop crucial professional skills, learn from a network of like-minded young people while being supported by experienced Student Energy coaches and a broad network of mentors.
When you apply to the energy Fellowship program you can apply as an individual or as a team. Teams are composed of 2-5 people, aged 18-30, that intend to work on the project and complete all the requirements of the fellowship. We require an application form from every individual team member. If you don’t have an idea for a project, we require you to have a concrete project area of interest and be able to detail that area of interest in this application. Once accepted we have tools available that will help you develop a project based on the idea you and your team want to pursue.
Team Project Requirements:
Your project is meant to be a project or event your team works on throughout the SE Fellows program. The idea is to have a project that applies your new skills and learnings into a tangible experience for you and your team.
