Apply for the 2022 Breakthrough Institute Generation Fellowship in Oakland in the United States. The Breakthrough Generation is an initiative in the Breakthrough Institute’s research program. The program was founded in 2008 with the aim of fostering the development of a new generation of thinkers and writers capable of inventing new solutions to the greatest challenges facing the world today in the areas of economy, environment, and energy.
Every year, the program offers several summer fellowships usually from June to August, dedicated to deserving students. These ten-week fellowships are highly competitive and are dedicated to recent college graduates and postgraduates from any university from around the world.
Usually, during the summer fellowship, the program dedicates the first two weeks of the summer to the Breakthrough Bootcamp, an intellectual crash course involving different activities including intensive reading, writing, and an expert lecture series designed to provide a grounding in the broad-spectrum thinking that informs Breakthrough’s policy agenda.
During the boot camp, participants explore several topics including modernization theory, social psychology, aspirational politics and philosophy, economics and innovation policy, and technology policy. For the remaining 8 weeks, fellows work in small teams divided between three program areas: Energy, Cities, or Food & Farming.
