Groundswell's fellowship program develops leaders in promoting sustainability and local economic opportunity.
Our Washington, D.C. office gives fellows exposure to a variety of organizations and businesses in the community and economic development, public policy and energy fields. Fellows will work in a dynamic environment and coordinate closely with program and department staff to design and complete projects in support of our mission.
Groundswell is committed to offering fellows leadership and professional development experience. Our program's curriculum includes structured evaluations from staff, a lunch time series of lectures and conversations with leading thinkers in the field, and events with high-impact networking opportunities.
The Emerging Leaders Summer Fellowship Program is a 12-week paid fellowship program for undergraduate students, recent graduates, and graduate students with an exceptional record of academic achievement, demonstrated leadership ability, and a commitment to social justice. The fellowship is open to students of color and first-generation students from all majors and areas of study. The timeline of the fellowship is mid-May through mid-August. There is some flexibility around start and end dates depending on the Fellow’s academic schedule.
Through this fellowship, Groundswell seeks to provide opportunities for students with unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds to engage in and explore the nonprofit social enterprise space. Fellows will support the mission of Groundswell and learn more about clean energy, energy efficiency, civic consumption, and community development. Groundswell is seeking independent and self-motivated individuals to work in a fast-paced and energetic environment.
Groundswell is no longer accepting applications for our Summer 2013 Fellowships. Check back in the Fall for more opportunities!
