About the Fellowship and Application
Fellows work together (and with partners and mentors) to identify their own roles and theories of change while supporting the engaged learning pillar of Energy2028. They coordinate with groups on campus and in the community through a mix of defined projects and projects of their own design to envision pathways for all students to leave Middlebury with the knowledge, motivation, and capacity to act on climate change in just and equitable ways.

Each cohort spends the summer working with a relevant organization or tackling an independent project, coming together to compare notes and build community together. In returning to campus in the fall, their projects focus on a variety of themes including but not limited to:
- Working with departments, centers, and student groups on climate change integration
- Planning and implementing communications efforts
- Coordinating speakers, trainings, and other events
- Working with data to better understand needs, opportunities, and impacts
- Connecting with alumni on career pathways and toolkits
- Connecting beyond Middlebury (other schools, external organizations, etc.)
- and more!

During the application window, interested students should apply with an unpaid OR paid internship or project either fully secured or in process. That internship does not need to be funded, as we will provide up to $4000 for unpaid internships with an additional $750 for all Fellows for participation in coordinated efforts (weekly meetings, guest speakers, reflections, etc.). Fellows continuing into the school year will be compensated for their work at Middlebury on an hourly basis.

Look forward to seeing you soon!
As always, please reach out to Minna and Andrés with any questions.
