Application Deadline: June 24, 2023
The Future Rising Fellowship Program supports young leaders ages 17-25 who are working at the intersection of climate change, environmental justice and gender equity and who wish to tell stories in that space.
Successful applicants receive a $5,000 stipend and participate in a year-long program consisting of virtual workshops that cover storytelling training, professional development and creative enrichment. Throughout the year, Fellows have access to experts drawn from a diverse range of disciplines: media professionals, journalists, educators, advocates, filmmakers, artists, academics, authors and climate scientists.
Each fellow creates a narrative project during the course of their Fellowship with practical support from the Future Rising team as well as external mentors and advisors. The Fellowship runs from August 2023 – August 2024. Fellows’ narrative projects in the 2023 Cohort must relate to Girls and Women in Conservation or Local Solutions.
Each fellow will receive a stipend of US$5,000. In addition, fellows will be invited to apply for a small additional grant for direct project expenses and materials.
Open to applicants from all countries. While the Fellow’s storytelling projects can be in any language, all Fellowship meetings and discussions are in English.
You must apply by completing the application form, answering all the questions, and uploading work samples. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.
