In 2001, MAP created the Sustainable Energy Fellowships to promote the awareness of environmental issues resulting from our past and present energy use. The Fellowship program supports the efforts of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are chosen based on their efforts to identify and solve the challenges of developing a more sustainable energy future. The Fellowship program solves two problems facing sustainable energy development:

  • How can NGOs attract the best students coming out of energy programs?
  • How can energy students find the best use of their education in a rewarding professional capacity while working in areas with fewer resources to compete for high caliber energy professionals?

To solve these problems, MAP provides fiscal resources to NGOs to attract young professionals and coordinates the recruitment efforts from the academic arena. The job focus of each Fellowship is to support efforts that address developing a more sustainable energy future, environmental problems, and the legacy of our past and present energy sources.

Fellowships are 12 weeks and 1 year in duration. Qualified applicants must be enrolled graduate or undergraduate students at Stanford University or alumni who have graduated from Stanford within the last three years. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and for positions of duration less than one year must not have previously been a MAP Fellow.

Selected candidates receive a stipend of $8,500 for each twelve-week Fellowship. In addition, funds are available for Fellowship-related travel. MAP creates and funds the Fellowships; the NGO is the employer.
