Upon graduation from the workshops, students join the C2C Fellows Network. The network, based at the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, provides C2C Fellows with an ongoing community: updates, web-based events, career counseling, a social network of like-minded leaders, and ongoing “second-stage” educational opportunities. C2C Fellows are also eligible to apply to become C2C Scholars—funded graduate school students in our M.S. in climate science and policy, in Bard’s M.B.A. in Sustainability; or the dual degree program M.S./M.B.A.

C2C stands for Campus to Congress, to Capitol, to City Hall, and also for Campus to Corporation. C2C stands for young people gaining control of their future. C2C Fellows is the power network for young people with the wisdom, ambition, talent, and grace to change the future.

$1,000 C2C Follow-On Scholarships
We are pleased to announce that two graduates of our 2011-12 workshops will receive $1,000 scholarships to attend follow-on, multi-day leadership trainings. The first, through Starting Bloc, is focused on how to start a green business. The second, through Wellstone Action, walks you through how to run your own political campaign.

In April 2012, C2C will establish an application process for these two incredible opportunities!
