Student Engagement

Internships and Fellowships

This year, the Center is starting two summer internships and one year-long fellowship to promote our goal of resourcing student leaders:

Faith Outreach Internship

The Faith Outreach Internship is a full-time summer internship for current students with an interest in Climate Action, Faith outreach within the Mennonite Church, and Coalition building. Students will engage with communities and congregations in the Mennonite church, both in the Great Lakes region and throughout the country, and serve as a bridge for the Center, to create long-term relationships with those communities. The Faith Outreach Internship is based in Goshen, Indiana, and includes housing and a monthly stipend.

Climate Advocacy Internship

The Climate Advocacy Internship is a full-time summer internship for students with an interest in Climate Action, Domestic Policy, and Advocacy. Students will engage in advocacy, organizing, and lobbying with the MCC Washington office, with a specific focus on mobilizing the Mennonite community around climate issues. The Climate Advocacy Internship is based in Washington, D.C., and includes housing and a monthly stipend.

Climate Futures Fellowship

The Climate Futures Fellowship Program is a year-long paid fellowship in one of the partner offices of the Center – Eastern Mennonite University (Harrisonburg, VA), Goshen College (Goshen, IN), or Mennonite Central Committee (Washington, D.C., or Goshen, IN). Recent graduates have the opportunity to send in proposals based on the needs of each partner, with one proposal being selected for a fellowship. Fellows can focus on anything from media and communications, to climate research, to the theology of creation, based on the immediate needs of the partner institutions and the Center, and the interests of the fellow. The position includes housing, transportation, and a monthly stipend for the year.

Applications are now open for the 2019-20 fellowship! Find the application here, and email daniel.bellerose@emu.edu with any questions!
