Past Sustainability Fellowship Opportunities

Sustainability Fellowships pair exceptional undergraduate and graduate students from UNH and universities across the country with municipal, educational, corporate, and non-profit partners in New England to work on transformative sustainability initiatives. Each summer, Sustainability Fellows undertake challenging projects that are designed to create an immediate impact, offer an extraordinary learning experience and foster meaningful collaboration.  While working on-site with their mentors at partner organizations, Fellows are supported by their Fellowship peers as well as an active network of partners, alumni and the UNH team, as they emerge as the next generation of sustainability leaders.
