The Anne Kantor Young Women Environmentalists Fellowship is a graduate-style program open to young women aged 18 to 27 years who wish to gain experience and develop skills in policy, research and advocacy on environmental, climate change and nature conservation issues.

Expressions of interest are currently being sought from interested individuals and organisations who would like to participate in the Australia Institute's Anne Kantor Young Women Environmentalists Fellowship as either an individual participant or program partner.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • provide Fellows with a unique opportunity to gain on the job training with environmental, climate change and nature conservation research or advocacy-based organisations
  • create an experienced pool of Fellows with the skills and experience to effectively advocate for change in the areas of environment, climate change and nature conservation
  • establish a pipeline of new voices to contribute to Australia's future environmental, climate change and nature conservation debates
  • build relationships and drive future collaboration with partner organisations and other stakeholders who focus on environmental, climate change and nature conservation research or advocacy

How it works

The program will fund up to four Fellows per annum for a period of 12 months (or the part-time equivalent).

Fellows will receive training and mentorship to develop skills and experience in environmental, climate change and nature conservation policy and advocacy at both the Australia Institute and/or at a partner organisation. Partner organisations may receive either a funded Fellowship placement, or offer a Fellow a secondment to their organisation.

The Anne Kantor Fellowship includes:

  • Support to develop skills and gain experience in public policy and advocacy at both the Australia Institute and/or at a partner organisation.
  • Mentoring: Fellows will be partnered with a mentor who will offer their knowledge and experience and provide advice to guide and support the Fellow during the program.
  • On the Job Training: The Australia Institute will provide training in areas such as economics, advocacy, media and communications, and NFP governance.
  • Networking Opportunities: Together with the Australia Institute’s cohort of graduates, Fellows will be invited to become members of the Australia Institute Alumni.

Eligibility: Applicants must satisfy the following criteria

  • An undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline;
  • A good writer and fast learner;
  • A skilled communicator; and
  • A team player who enjoys working with a high-performing team to get results and create impact.

Applications to the Anne Kantor Young Women Environmentalists Fellowship are open to young women aged 18 to 27 years. The Anne Kantor Fellowship welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, women of colour, non binary people and trans women and those from regional or rural communities.
