The RCC Fellowship Program is designed to identify outstanding students with a passion for environmental education, organizing, and advocacy and provide them with financial support to carry out valuable projects and campaigns on behalf of the RCC. To apply to the program, students propose their own projects that are focused on sustainability and environmental justice to be carried out on their campuses and in their communities. Individuals considering applying to the program may consider a wide variety of potential projects. Former fellows have run projects ranging from divestment campaigns to podcasts on environmental justice issues and campaigns for renewable energy infrastructure on their campuses.
Special consideration will be given to fellows applying in areas where the Rachel Carson Council has ongoing campaigns or work. These include, but are not limited to, divestment, renewable energy, particularly solar energy, and environmental justice. More information about RCC’s work can be found on our website.
RCC Fellows are nationally recognized youth leaders and organizers. If accepted into the program, Fellows will become active members of the RCC national campus program with over 5,000 active faculty, students, staff and administrators at 63 campuses and benefit from the mentorship of Leading climate and environmental author, Dr. Robert K. Musil, and Associate Director Mackay Pierce.
