Hazel M. Johnson Fellowship Program 2024 {U.S. Only}

The Hazel M. Johnson Fellowship Program focuses on increasing opportunities for emerging leaders of color to learn about, engage with, and enter the environmental and climate sectors with adequate funding, mentorship, and community building.

The Fellowship is designed to attract and support Black women and gender-expansive rising juniors, rising seniors, and recent college graduates with demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in the environmental and/or climate sectors.

Program Overview

Hazel M. Johnson Fellows are placed with a partner organization for a 10-week summer internship placement and cohort experience, gaining the skills, resources, and connections necessary to enter and stay in the environmental and climate sector.

All Fellows are assigned mentors, grow their networks, and forge lasting relationships within and between the cohort of fellows. HMJ Fellowship positions are full-time paid positions with a minimum hourly wage of $18 an hour. All Fellows will also receive a stipend of $5,000 (on top of the hourly wage) to go towards living expenses, professional development, and wellness, in addition to weekly coordinated professional development through Partner Organizations and Black Girl Environmentalist. The summer will conclude with an in-person retreat with fellow participants.
