Description:
The Switzer Fellowship Program offers one-year Fellowships to highly talented graduate students in New England and California whose studies and career goals are directed toward environmental improvement and who clearly demonstrate leadership in their field. The Fellowship provides a $15,000 cash award for academic study, leadership training, access to a vibrant network of more than 600 Switzer Fellowship alums, and opportunities for professional development during the Fellowship year and beyond.

Through the Switzer Fellowship Program, the Foundation supports environmental leaders for the 21st century who have the ability, determination and integrity to effect positive change. Only the most active, committed and focused individuals will compete successfully to join the Switzer Fellowship Network of more than 600 Fellows selected since 1986.

Switzer Fellows come from diverse social, academic and economic backgrounds and are on the leading edge of environmental and social change through efforts in environmental science, policy, conservation, environmental justice, public health, economics, journalism, urban planning, business, law and more. Switzer Fellows are committed to interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral work, applied results, and collaborative leadership and may apply from ANY field of study. Further, they are committed to their own professional development and to continually improving their leadership skills throughout their careers.

There is one application deadline per year. Application guidelines and the online application are updated in early October for each annual cycle.
