Are you a student or a graduated and you are the best thinker and writer? Breakthrough Generation is searching for young analysts, writers to take part in its program.
Breakthrough Generation is an initiative in the Breakthrough Institute’s research program, founded in 2008 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.
Each summer, Breakthrough seeks five to ten outstanding young analysts, writers, and thought leaders for the Breakthrough Generation Fellowship. This year, fellows will contribute writing and research to one the three main issue areas at the Breakthrough Institute: Energy, Conservation, or Food and Farming.
