Duration for New Futures Fellowships is May 2024 – September 2024
Scholars and activists looking for careers around climate change can get apply for the New Futures Fellowship, which is a three-month remote fellowship program that focuses on innovative and interdisciplinary solutions to the climate crisis. The fellowship program brings together activists and scholars from around the globe to conduct research, make policy recommendations, and produce creative digital content.
New Futures Fellowships 2024 program is centered around two critical themes: Climate + River Delta Communities and Clean Energy + Environmental Justice. From May 28, 2024, to September 6, 2024, fellows will collaborate in teams, taking on roles as researchers, campaigners, communicators, and policy analysts.
The fellowship is a full-time educational experience with a stipend of $2500. All scheduled events, which will include writing training, advocacy training, digital skills training, communications workshops, and expert speaker sessions, are crucial components of this immersive experience. In addition to scheduled events, fellows will actively participate in collaborative team efforts and conduct independent research. Given the global participation of this program, fellows must be highly flexible in accommodating different time zones to collaborate effectively with others in the group.
By the end of August 2024, the Fellowship teams will produce an academic-style policy paper proposing a solution to the assigned problem, an advocacy plan with concrete recommendations, and multimedia products such as explainer videos and infographics to clearly communicate the issue and its stakes.
Applications are being accepted until January 31, 2024 at 11:59 PM EST. Apply here.
