About this grant

This grant will enable the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) to build a stronger, more collaborative, and more inclusive environmental movement through its national fellowship program. Semi-annual retreats are the cornerstone of the fellowship program, including a spring retreat for each new fellowship class and a joint summer retreat for all active fellows each year. Following the first retreat, each fellow develops a personal leadership plan that includes specific goals and activities for the remainder of his or her two-year fellowship. ELP provides a small grant of up to $5,000 that serves as seed money to implement projects the fellows otherwise might not have the opportunity to complete.The Environmental Leadership Program began its National Fellows program seven years ago.
