Student Energy Fellowship

To meet the world’s emissions reduction targets, address the climate crisis, and implement low-carbon technologies, we need a capable and diverse workforce motivated to accelerate the energy transition. 

The Student Energy Fellowship Program is designed for:

  •  Young people aged 18-30 who are interested in and passionate about the energy transition.
  • Who can commit to completing the SE curriculum over the course of 8 months, from March to October.

Applications for the Fellowship are now closed

Our Fellowship program offers a unique opportunity for a high-level overview of energy systems and project development skills for young people who are looking to take the next step on their energy transition journey. Our program curriculum teaches:

  •  The foundations of project development, providing skills that apply to any level. 
  • As a multidisciplinary program, both Tiers of the Fellowship aim to help participants find their unique path towards accelerating the energy transition through the many possible career paths available today. 

By joining our program, we hope that Fellows will continue to use their skills, networks, and experiences from the program to continue accelerating the energy transition beyond the Fellowship. 

The Fellowship consists of two separate and the core difference between the two Tiers is:

  • Tier 1 – Project Focused:  Fellows work on a project with their coach, as well as completing a series of learning modules and assignment submissions.
  • Tier 2 – Content Focused: Fellows work solely through the online educational content.

Accelerating youth innovation

The Student Energy Fellowship program consists of specialized coursework and mentoring sessions paired with a chance to implement your learnings and make an impact through a project. The course is broken down into two tracks:

Track 1 is the energy knowledge component of the program, where we dive deep into the basics of the current energy system, and the different systems that influence it;

Track 2 focuses on project and leadership skills, and allows participants to learn and practice these skills in relation to their projects.

Specialized Coursework

Each month you will be assigned a module from both Track 1 and Track 2. Each unit is packed with information, knowledge checks, interactive elements, and dive deeper resources. The skills you learn in each unit not only help you launch your project but are also core project and professional skills.


One on one coaching sessions

You and your team will meet with your Student Energy coach once a month for a coaching session. This is your opportunity to check-in, ask questions about your assignments, and receive extra resources and guidance that can help you in your project work.


The project portion of the Student Energy Fellowship is designed to help you apply and practice your learnings and skills gained throughout the program. Over the 8-months of the fellowship, your coach will help you through the processes of problem identification, early-stage project development, and community engagement to name a few.

Whether you have a concrete project idea or simply an issue you’re passionate about, the Fellowship coaches will help you and your team to develop a project plan and narrow down your ideas. So long as it is in some way related to the energy transition – the sky is the limit!
