Applications for the Breakthrough Generation Fellowship 2019 are now open!

Each summer, Breakthrough seeks five to ten outstanding young analysts, writers, and thought leaders for the Breakthrough Generation Fellowship. Fellows will contribute writing and research to one our three main issue areas at the Breakthrough Institute: Energy, Conservation, or Food & Farming. Fellowships are highly competitive — only 5-10 percent of applicants are generally accepted — and involve cutting-edge writing, research, and public policy analysis.

The fellowship runs for ten weeks between June and August and pays $600 per week. Fellows work 40 hours per week, and may be considered for full-time employment at the end of the fellowship. Breakthrough does not provide housing.

Who can apply?

Final-year undergraduates, college graduates, and postgraduates are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Fellowships are open to applicants from any country.

How do I apply?

When applications are open, you can apply through our online application form. You will need to provide your basic information, a cover letter, resume or CV, references, and three writing samples (see details about these below). All uploaded documents must be in PDF format. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

When is the application deadline?

Applications for Breakthrough Generation 2019 are due Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 11:59 pm PT.

When will I hear back?

We review applications as they come in, but we do not make final decisions about acceptances until after the final deadline. You will hear back from us within two to four weeks after the application deadline. There are two rounds of phone interviews before final decisions are made.

When does Breakthrough Generation take place?

Breakthrough Generation 2019 fellowships will take place mid-June to mid-August 2019. The first two weeks will be dedicated to Breakthrough Bootcamp, an intellectual crash course in Breakthrough's history and research. If you have a scheduling conflict with these dates, please email us as soon as possible to discuss.

Cover Letter

Please indicate at the top of your cover letter which of the three research areas you wish to be considered for: Energy, Conservation, or Food & Farming. An excellent cover letter will display a thorough understanding of Breakthrough's work and ideas, and discuss at least one of our publications and/or An Ecomodernist Manifesto or Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus's book Break Through. Please limit your cover letter to one page maximum.

CV/Resume
