The Climate and Security Advisory Group (CSAG) is pleased to announce a call for applications for its 2019 Climate Security Fellowship Program, a collaborative effort of the American Security Project, the Center for Climate and Security and the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program. Applications are due by 5pm Eastern Standard Time on September 30, 2019.
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 Fellowship Program. It is the first professional organization for emerging leaders seeking meaningful careers at the intersection of climate change and security.
The program connects 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 and contribute to a collective report.
The program will run from October 2019 – May 2020. Fellowship events will be hosted at partner organization offices 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.
All applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and writing sample under 700 words to Esther Babson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please title all documents sent in the following format: Last Name_Resume; Last Name_LetterofInterest; Last Name_WritingSample
Applications are due by 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on September 30, 2019.
