Become a Fellow: Apply for the Club of Rome Communications Fellowship 2024 (fully funded & open to applicants from all regions of the world)

The Club of Rome is currently accepting applications for its Communications Fellowship 2024.  The fellowship is a full-time six-month mentoring programme aimed at increasing the diversity of voices covering sustainability issues and supporting early-career communications professionals who are from underrepresented communities and regions. The successful fellows will be integrated into The Club of Rome communications team, working remotely from their home environment and with one trip to meet members of The Club of Rome team (likely in Europe). The fellowship offers a modest stipend towards living costs and includes work-related travel costs.
