The Bullitt Foundation Environmental Fellowship is a program to identify and support environmentally focused leaders in the Pacific Northwest.
The Bullitt Environmental Fellowship is an award that provides a currently enrolled graduate student with a $100,000 prize over a two-year span of time to advance a project, engage in creative thinking, or spur action to address a specific environmental issue that furthers the Bullitt Foundation’s mission, outreach and impact in the Emerald Corridor.
The Foundation is seeking an award winner who can do the following:

- When applicable, be open to collaboration or opportunities to attend relevant meetings, conferences, or other work in which Foundation staff is engaged.

To be eligible, Fellowship winners must have the following qualities:
- Be nominated by a faculty member who has knowledge of the applicant’s studies and field work. We strongly encourage the nomination of persons of color.
