The University of New Hampshire’s Sustainability Institute is seeking applications for our 2020 summer Sustainability Fellowships.

UNH Sustainability Fellowships pair exceptional students from across the U.S. with host partners in New England to work on transformative sustainability initiatives that lead to integrated solutions.

Sustainability Fellows, mentored by the UNH team and dedicated individuals from our partner organizations, undertake challenging site-specific summer projects,  achieve high-impact results, and receive a competitive stipend for their contributions. Since 2008, 162 students have participated in the Sustainability Fellowship program – they are now working in a variety of sectors across the U.S.
