Interns and Fellows Program

The Interns and Fellows Program follows on the Fund’s commitment to invest in and build the leadership capacity and skills of diverse, visionary and collaborative professionals in the field.

Each year the internship and fellowship staff in consultation with our network of Funders, NGOs and experts, identify key issue areas that require further development and have the potential to produce an outsized impact in scaling up initiatives to catalyze a transition from fossil fuels to clean energy in the electricity sector of key regions. The internship and fellowship experience provides a dynamic, hands-on experience for students and early-career professionals committed to addressing energy challenges with cross-sector approaches in key regions of the world including South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe and Africa.

Fellows work collaboratively with a host organization to shape and execute a project that simultaneously advances the mission of the organization and provides the Fellow with the opportunity to develop leadership capabilities, management skills and the confidence to advance their professional contributions and accelerate their careers. 

Growald Family Fund is committed to promoting cultural diversity and female leadership within the field. Applicants from key regions listed above are highly encouraged to apply to available positions.
