Calling All Young Revolutionaries :: $5000 Fellowship Deadline Approaching

Got a big idea you’ve wanted to pursue to advance the clean energy movement? Breakthrough Generation, the youth initiative of the Breakthrough Institute, is awarding ten $5,000 Fellowships to the country’s top young organizers and thinkers.

We’re seeking highly motivated, capable, and innovative young leaders who want to pursue a campus or local clean energy project while advancing the larger movement for a $500 billion federal investment in clean energy to spark an energy revolution and win on global warming.

The deadline is this Friday, March 21

The Breakthrough Institute is also offering paid Breakthrough Summer Internships. The internship takes place at the Breakthrough Institute’s main office in Oakland, CA, and involves high-level research, analysis, and writing that is substantial and substantive, both individually and in collaboration with senior Breakthrough staff. Much of this will focus on the policy, politics, and technology behind clean energy and global warming. Our interns have gone on to co-author major white papers in journals such as the Harvard Law & Policy Review, and the stipend is $300 per week. More information is available at www.thebreakthrough.org/jobs.shtml.

The Breakthrough Institute, a progressive think tank directed by Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus, is working on several fronts – including political candidates, forward-thinking philanthropists, social change agents, and the youth climate movement – to advance a major federal investment in the clean energy economy. We believe that young people today are uniquely positioned to advance a more powerful movement and wish to support their efforts.
