The Climate Engagement Program aims to facilitate engagement on issues of climate change by creating a network of skilled, early career scholars.

We aim to connect early career researchers with the highest potential to expand climate literacy among the racially, ethnically and culturally diverse communities of the US. The program is looking for 10 passionate, creative graduate students or early career scientists from any discipline, whose dissertations address topics surrounding climate change.

Climate Engagement Fellows must be enrolled in a university, or have finished their dissertation in the last 2 years, anywhere in the United States or its territories.
