The process in detail
EDF recruits top-tier graduate students with strong backgrounds in fields such as engineering, energy and environmental management, finance, real estate, technology, and other disciplines. EDF matches fellows with host organizations based on fellow qualifications, host needs, and overall fit for the program. EDF provides a mandatory in-person training on energy efficiency, an EDF project manager for support, and access to online collaboration tools and expert resources.

For selected public-sector and nonprofit hosts, the total financial contribution will be $2.500 (please contact EDF for details).
- Provide a supportive high-level project sponsor, as well as an accessible day-to-day manager, for the duration of the fellowship.
- Conduct an energy audit related to the fellow workplan prior to the beginning of the fellowship or comprehensive energy information should be readily available.
