Climate Leadership Fellows

Climate Leadership Fellows

Through the Fellows program, we are able to recruit, mentor, and commission promising evangelical undergraduate students from across the United States to become faithful leaders equipped to transform their communities and help build the climate movement. The Fellowship is a selective program that begins with a training retreat in the summer and runs for an academic year.

One of the central components of the Fellowship is the opportunity to develop a climate action plan that strategically engages the Fellow’s campus, church and community around climate action. The Fellowship includes a $1,000 stipend, professional training, and access to national-level climate and church leaders. To learn more about the application process, please visit the Climate Leadership Fellows Page.

We are excited to introduce the students who have stepped up to be Climate Leadership Fellows.
