Opportunity Description

The Future Rising Fellowship Program 2022 by Girl Rising is now accepting applications. The Future Rising Fellowship is a year-long online program for young people aged 17 to 24 who want to tell stories about climate change, environmental justice, and gender equity. Fellows must complete a narrative project that highlights their work or tells the story of girls and women who are innovating and working to address the effects of climate change and environmental injustice during their time with the program.
