I am writing from a nonprofit solar financing organization based in San Francisco called RE-volv. RE-volv finances solar projects for nonprofits and cooperatives that serve their community. Last year, RE-volv launched the Solar Ambassador Program, a yearlong internship for college students interested in renewable energy. For the 2015-2016 academic year, the Solar Ambassador Program has been revamped as a fellowship that gives teams of students the opportunity to develop and execute a solar project in their community.
This fellowship is a unique opportunity for college students to take clean energy into their own hands and have a real impact in their communities, while developing key project management and communications skills. Additionally, students will be able to participate in webinars with leaders in the environmental and renewable energy fields.
We are now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic year, and we are hoping to reach students who would be most interested in this opportunity directly. It would be wonderful if you could pass this along to your students and to others in your department.
I hope you’ll consider encouraging your students to apply for this great opportunity. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. Application materials and more information can be found here.
Thanks so much, and I look forward to being in touch.
