RCC is excited to share that we are extending the application deadline for the Fellowship program to this Friday, May 8th.
We were incredibly excited to see the volume of interest in the fellowship program this year and we wanted to be sure that everyone interested had the opportunity to apply.
As apart of the Rachel Carson Council Campus Programs, the Fellowship Program is a paid opportunity designed for students who have a passion for sustainability and environmental justice. As part of the program, students will work on a campaign or project on your campus to promote sustainability over the course of the next academic year.
Our current fellows have engaged in a number of ambitious projects, from divestment to tackling campus food insecurity. Read about our current fellows and their projects here.
Students accepted into the program will receive a $2,000 (!!) stipend over the course of the year for their work. Furthermore, they will get to attend a grassroots organizing training with RCC, as well as the opportunity to publish about their work over the course of the year through RCC.
The application process is very simple, requiring only a one-page proposal, a resume, and a letter of reference from a professor. You can find the application for the program here.
Please reach out if you have any questions about the program and, remember, the new application deadline is this Friday, May 8th.
