Summer 2013 | Paid Fellowship with The Breakthrough Institute

Summer 2013 | Paid Fellowship with The Breakthrough Institute

Generation is Breakthrough Institute’s young leaders initiative, founded in 2007 to foster the development of a new generation of thinkers and writers capable of finding pragmatic new solutions to today’s greatest challenges in the areas of energy, economy, and environment.

Every summer from June to August, Generation offers a small number of paid, highly competitive, ten-week fellowships to recent college graduates and postgraduates from around the world.

The full syllabus of Breakthrough Bootcamp can be dowloaded here.

In addition to research and analysis, fellows attend the Breakthrough Dialogue - a superb opportunity to interact with the wider Breakthrough community as well as attend talks, debates, and working groups within Breakthrough’s different program areas. Throughout the summer, fellows are offered a range of visits to other think tanks and institutions in the Bay Area, as well as social events and a weekend camping trip.

Over 50 young experts and analysts have completed Generation since its inception in 2007 and moved on to important positions in government, academia, and the nonprofit sector. Together with career support from the Breakthrough staff and the wider network of Senior Fellows and associates, the fellowship makes for many avenues to embark on an exciting career.
