Call for Applications for the Inaugural 2018 CSAG Climate Security Fellowship Program
The Climate and Security Advisory Group (CSAG), is pleased to announce a call for applications for its inaugural Climate Security Fellowship Program.
In response to increasing demand for mentorship and increased interest in career pathways for climate and security practitioners, the Climate and Security Advisory Group has developed a community-wide Climate Security Fellows Program. It will be the first professional organization for emerging leaders seeking meaningful careers at the intersection of climate change and security.
The program will connect established climate security experts with prospective future leaders through a year- long program. Fellows will develop relations with cohort members, gain experience through research and writing, and network with leading practitioners through monthly roundtable discussions with subject matter experts. Ultimately, fellows will play a leading role in expanding the climate and security network of the next generation.
The program will run from October 2018 – May 2019 and hosted at partner organizations in Washington, DC.
The Climate Security Fellows Program is open to applicants with at minimum a Bachelors degree and proven interest in pursuing a career that works to address climate security risks.
Fellows must be able to attend monthly lunches or early evening discussions in Washington, DC. The program may make exceptions in certain situations.
All applicants should provide a resume, cover letter, and writing sample under 700 words to Esther Babson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due by 5:00 pm ET on September 14th, 2018.
