About the Organization

Global Sustainability Scholars program is a life-long network of change leaders in global sustainability – building a world we all want to live in today and tomorrow.

Global Sustain+Ability Scholars program trains and supports rising young professionals from diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and worldviews. We are a professional community, working on global sustainable development challenges that face communities and environments.

About the Fellowship

The GSS Fellows program offers a 10-week paid immersive training and mentoring with a global sustainability organization. Fellows will gain professional work experience, receive professional mentorship and professional development training, and build an international professional network in sustainability science. We will accept 10 fellows per year to join the GSS community, provide advanced professional development training, and build professional connections that foster opportunities for employment and/or graduate school opportunities.

Fellows will work with sustainability organizations such as Belmont Forum research projects or Future Earth projects focused on OCEAN sustainability. Fellows are paid a stipend of $8,000 for their full participation in the program. Each fellowship may provide different opportunities and experiences, however, all Fellows will have a core curriculum and a GSS mentor. GSS Fellowships may meet graduate school requirements as professional internships, so be sure to make proper arrangements with the GSS program director prior to acceptance.
