Applications are open for the Global Sustainability Scholars Fellowship Programme 2023. The GSS Fellows programme offers a 10-week paid immersive training and mentoring with a global sustainability organization.
Fellows will gain professional work experience, receive professional mentorship and professional development training, and build an international professional network in sustainability science. The programme will accept 10 fellows per year to join the GSS community, provide advanced professional development training, and build professional connections that foster opportunities for employment and/or graduate school opportunities.
Fellows will work with sustainability organizations such as Belmont Forum research projects or Future Earth projects focused on OCEAN sustainability. Each fellowship may provide different opportunities and experiences, however, all Fellows will have a core curriculum and a GSS mentor. GSS Fellowships may meet graduate school requirements as professional internships, so be sure to make proper arrangements with the GSS programme director prior to acceptance.
- Fellows are paid a stipend of $8,000 for their full participation in the programme.
- GSS Fellows must have completed a bachelor’s degree within the past four years, be enrolled in a graduate school, and be able to demonstrate their interest in working on global sustainability solutions.
- 2023 Fellows will be embedded in projects with partners organizations in the Belmont Forum or Future Earth research communities.
- Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have the proper legal documentation to travel abroad (passport) March 2023.
The programme will begin on May 15, 2023, and the last day will be July 23, 2023 – this includes travel.
