The High Meadows Fellowship Program places recent Princeton graduates in two-year positions with nonprofit organizations that aim to protect the environment, promote environmental sustainability, and build environmentally focused communities.
Through their work with these nonprofits, fellows have an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience while exploring a career in the public interest and making a genuine contribution toward advancing the organizations’ objectives. The positions are located throughout the U.S., with the nation’s leading environmental organizations, Climate Central(link is external), High Meadows Fund(link is external), Environmental Defense Fund(link is external), The Food Project(link is external), The Wilderness Society(link is external) and our new fellowship partner organization, The Real Food Generation(link is external).
High Meadows fellows are able to build on the knowledge and skills they developed at Princeton and find new opportunities to develop and extend their expertise. Their responsibilities have included research, report writing, developing and promoting public policy proposals, working closely with diverse groups of people, and testifying before legislative committees.
