Fellowship & Internship Opportunities


Updated 11/11/18:

Environment America Fellowship

Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or building a community coalition to keep local waters clean. Imagine building the organizational power—the funds, the membership, the activist base and more—that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul. That’s what you’ll do with Environment America during this two-year fellowship program. We work to mobilize support it takes to build more solar and wind power, reduce global warming pollution, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, protect our wildlife and wild places, and hold polluters accountable when they violate our environmental laws. Our mission—the thing that drives everything we do—is to harness our country’s wealth, our technology, and our imagination to make our world a greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live for all of us.

Castanea Fellowship 

The Castanea Fellowship is looking for visionaries ready to to amplify their impact and propel their leadership deeper into building a healthier, more equitable, and sustainable food system. This is not for those new to the work, it’s for the established leaders who are already equipped with a deep understanding of how the food system could shift in a meaningful way, have had considerable impact, and know they could do more. They have been committed to the work, are not new to racial equity, believe in the power of diversity, and welcome collaboration.

The Castanea Fellowship is a two-year, awarded program that provides fellows the space, time, and resources to grow skills, connections, and community. We aim to further the work of established leaders from across the country and provide them with unique learning and skill-building opportunities.
