The Hazel M. Johnson Fellowship Program is a 10-week paid climate internship program that focuses on increasing opportunities for emerging leaders of color to learn about, engage with, and enter the environmental and climate sectors with adequate funding, mentorship, and community building. The Fellowship is designed to attract and support Black women and gender-expansive rising juniors, rising seniors, and recent college graduates with demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in the environmental and/or climate sectors.
Our inaugural cohort will place 12-15 fellows at organizations within the U.S. working across a diverse set of sectors including (but not limited to): policy, clean energy, art, environmental justice, climate tech, and fashion. Black Girl Environmentalist will provide fellows: a $5,000 living & wellness stipend, weekly (virtual) professional development workshops, and an in-person end-of-summer retreat. Partner organizations will cover the fellow’s hourly wage and a modest program fee. I’ve attached an info document below.
