Applications for Breakthrough Generation 2013 are now open — deadline March 5, 2013 at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time.
The Breakthrough Institute is seeking five to ten outstanding young analysts, writers, and thought leaders for a paid fellowship in summer 2013 as part of their young leaders initiative, Breakthrough Generation. Fellows will contribute writing and research to one of three policy programs at the Breakthrough Institute: Energy and Climate, Conservation and Development, or Economic Growth and Innovation. Fellowships are highly competitive — only 5-10 percent of applicants are generally accepted — and involve cutting-edge writing, research, and public policy analysis.
The fellowship runs for ten weeks between June and August 2013 and pays $500 per week. The exact dates will be set in March. Fellows work 40 hours per week, and may be considered for full-time employment at the end of the fellowship. Breakthrough does not provide housing.
Who Can Apply?
Final-year undergraduates, college graduates, and postgraduates are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Fellowships are open to applicants from any country.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume or CV, and three writing samples to generation [at] thebreakthrough.org. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The application must reach Breakthrough Institute by March 5, 2013 at 11:59 PM PST.
