Applications are open for Global Sustainability Scholars Fellows Program 2021. The GSS Fellows program offers a 10-week paid immersive training and mentoring with a global sustainability organization. Fellows will gain professional work experience, receive professional mentorship and professional development training, and build an international professional network in sustainability science.

Global Sustainability Scholars Fellows will accept 2-6 fellows per year to join the GSS community; provide advanced professional development training; build professional connections that foster opportunities for employment and/or graduate school opportunities.


Fellows are paid USD8,000 for the ten weeks of participation. If travel is possible, the GSS Program will cover the airfare round trip (economy class) and housing in a youth hostel or some similar arrangement. You must have a valid US passport at the time of travel. GSS cannot reimburse for participants for Passport expenses and fees. Your participant stipend is intended to cover food costs.


Fellows will work with sustainability organizations such as Belmont Forum research projects or Future Earth and will engage with participants of the GSS scholars. Fellows are paid a stipend of $8,000 for their full participation in the program. Each fellowship may provide different opportunities and experiences, however, all Fellows will have a core curriculum and a GSS mentor. GSS Fellowships may meet graduate school requirements as professional internships, so be sure to make proper arrangements with the GSS program director prior to acceptance.


  • GSS Fellows must have completed a bachelor’s degree within the past four years and be able to demonstrate their interest in working on global sustainability solutions.
  • Applicants should be enrolled in graduate studies currently or have receipt of admissions in a program by Fall 2021.
  • 2021 Fellows will be embedded in projects with the partner organizations in the Belmont Forum or Future Earth research communities. GSS Fellows will be expected to work independently and if appropriate mentor GSS Scholars.
  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have the proper legal documentation to travel abroad (passport) in May 2021.
