Rachel Carson Council Fellowship

The Rachel Carson Council Fellowship Program is designed to identify undergraduates with a passion for environmental education, organizing and advocacy and provide them with training in Washington, DC, mentorship from RCC environmental staff, and financial support to do the valuable work they care about and become life-long advocates for the environment. RCC Fellows become leaders and active participants in the RCC’s national campus program with over 5,000 active faculty, students, staff and administrators at 56 campuses. As part of the RCC team, Fellows also help build RCC’s network of active students and faculty and have the opportunity to publish and speak on behalf of a respected national organization.

The RCC Fellowship program is a paid opportunity. RCC Fellows will receive a stipend for their work over the course of the year. Furthermore, Fellows will attend a training in Washington, DC this summer, hosted by RCC staff to sharpen their organizing skills. Lastly, Fellows will develop critical contacts and experience as they look forward to careers in the environmental movement.
