Community Energy Fellowship Program, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)

Sep 15,2023 | Consortium_staff Fellowships

The Community Energy Fellowship Program (CEFP) sponsors candidates from diverse backgrounds to spend 18 months embedded in state, local, and tribal governments (Hosts) learning about and assisting in the implementation of clean energy projects and programs. Fellows will be matched with one or more local or tribal governments to apply their knowledge and experiences to the Host’s current activities. CEFP is sponsored by the Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) to support its mission of providing on-site clean energy technical assistance to its Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) recipients.

Community Energy Fellows will receive hands-on experience that provides an understanding of the mission, operations, and culture of the local or tribal government and first-hand experience implementing new clean energy projects and initiatives. The goal of the Community Energy Fellowship Program is to increase access to clean energy career opportunities across the country and accelerate the national transition to resilient and affordable clean energy. Fellows will receive a stipend to support their participation in the program and an allowance for education and professional development opportunities.

The deadline to apply is October 8.
