climate policy fellows

The Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership is pleased to announce the inaugural cohort of Climate Policy Fellows. In 2019-20, 26 CCNY students—equal numbers of architecture, engineering, science, and social science majors—will participate in an intensive set of workshops culminating in paid internships in Summer 2020 with leading NGOs and think tanks in NYC and Washington, DC.

The program is led by Trevor Houser, a 2006 CCNY alum who is a partner with the Rhodium Group and leads the firm’s Energy and Climate team. He served in the State Department during the Obama administration.

We had more students apply for the Climate Policy Fellows program than for any of our other fellowship programs within the Colin Powell School this year, a signal of the level of concern and engagement among young people around climate change. The community of national policy leaders on climate issues skews wealthy and white. If our program is successful, it can help to diversify the ranks of those who are making decisions on these issues.

You can read the bios for the 2019-20 Climate Policy Fellows here.
