EnergyWatch Inc. Creates Fellowship for Future Energy Leaders at NYU Steinhardt


EnergyWatch Inc. has partnered with New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to create The EnergyWatch Fellowship. This new graduate fellowship will provide essential support for students in Steinhardt’s master’s program in Environmental Conservation Education, which prepares the next generation of environmental leaders. Graduates of the program hold positions in city and state departments of environmental protection and park services; the United Nations Environment Programme; environmental education centers, zoos, and botanical gardens; and public and private schools.

Beginning in fall 2008, one student will be selected to receive a fellowship. Students interested in receiving the fellowship will write a special essay describing their reasons for seeking the fellowship and their plans for environmental leadership; NYU will select fellows on the basis of students’ academic and leadership potential. Applications are due to the Office of Graduate Admissions by April 15, 2008.

“We’re delighted to partner with EnergyWatch for such a wonderful initiative,” said Mary Brabeck, Dean of NYU Steinhardt. “This Fellowship will enable us to give invaluable support to the next generation of leaders in environmental education, research, and advocacy.”

“We hope the EnergyWatch Fellowship will inspire and encourage NYU Steinhardt’s exceptional students to go forward and achieve great things in the field of Environmental Education,” said EnergyWatch President Jay Raphaelson. “It’s our way of giving back to the community.”
