APPLY || LATEST Future Rising Fellowship Program (2022/23)

Deadline: March 10, 2022

Applications for the Future Rising Fellowship Program 2022 are now being accepted. The Future Rising Fellowship is a year-long virtual program for young people aged 17 to 24 who want to convey their stories about climate change, environmental justice, and gender equity in a digital context.

Over the course of their fellowship, Fellows must complete a narrative project that either showcases their own work or tells the story of a girl or woman who is innovating and working to alleviate the impacts of climate change and environmental injustice.

For this year’s Fellowship, the Fellowship will be focused on two specific areas: FOOD AND WATER SECURITY, and LOCAL CLIMATE SOLUTIONS, respectively. This means that applicants should submit narrative/storytelling projects that are focused on either one of these two topics or both at the same time.
