Summer Fellowship Opportunity for Students

by the editors 25/03/2014

Tom Johnson just made us aware of the following opportunity:

The Arctic Climate Change Emerging Leaders (ACCEL) Fellowship is a new and unique summer opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, in North America and Europe. The program aims to train next generation of Arctic Ambassadors and is an exciting opportunity for emerging leaders interested in international security, environmental issues, shipping and trade, energy and natural resources, or public relations and diplomacy. Fellows will work at the nexus between policy and communications helping to write, package, and market policy analysis to key audiences, and increase awareness of Arctic issues in the public consciousness.

Two paid positions are available in Washington, DC and Berlin for ACCEL fellows dedicated to helping launch this program. Fellows will receive a living stipend, expenses-paid participation in the Arctic Circle Conference in Reykjavik, Iceland, September 5-7, 2014, access to EcologicĀ“s Arctic Summer College summer seminars, and unparalleled networking in the global Arctic community. Fellows will be chosen through an online essay contest with the public voting to select winner. We have already begun accepting submissions and the voting will close April 13th. More details about the program and application process can be found in the attached document or here:
