Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Drawdown is a US-based organization developing a book, open-source database, and digital platform describing how 100 existing technological, social, and ecological solutions, deployed at scale, can alter the composition of our atmosphere and help forge a path toward temperature decline. Co-developed by our coalition of scientists, scholars, policymakers, students, advocates and business leaders from across the globe, Drawdown represents the collaborative input of over 200 organizations and individuals worldwide.

The Drawdown Fellowship Program is designed to foster the development of a new cohort of leaders working on pragmatic solutions to our climate crisis. These scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs, and advocates will learn how to describe a realistic future in which the world achieves drawdown by collecting and analyzing the best available research on 100 carefully vetted technological, social, and ecological solutions.

We offer a small number of competitive fellowships to exceptional PhD students, scholars, and seasoned professionals from around the world. Fellows work with Project Drawdown’s research team to develop realistic, solution-specific models, technical reports, and policy memos projecting the financial and climate impacts of ‘state-of-the-shelf’ solutions deployed at scale over the next thirty years.

Fellows also take part in a number of professional development opportunities providing practical tools and experience to enhance their career development. These opportunities will be available for fellows both during and after the fellowship period. We have created this program as a platform for fellows to become spokespeople in the climate solutions movement, and will continue to offer these resources, connections, and opportunities for fellows to be thought leaders in their communities and beyond.
