The Veterans Advanced Energy Fellowship seeks to create a cadre of future leaders within the advanced energy industry.
A successful fellow will become a peer mentor, advocate, and spokesperson for other veterans, reservists, and military spouses, helping to solidify the advanced energy connection to national security and the mission-driven advancement of veterans’ employment in advanced energy.
As fellows rise within advanced energy organizations, they can more closely tie national security to energy security, as well as move the advanced energy economy forward. The program will provide a select group of high-performing, high-potential leaders with:
- Policy training in energy diplomacy, markets, technology, and experience-based skills training such as public speaking, op-ed writing, and entrepreneurship
- Mentorship from senior national security and energy leaders in the Atlantic Council’s network
- Participation in high-profile settings, including Atlantic Council events, publications, and placement of written work
- Exposure to cutting-edge, fast-growing companies seeking candidates that couple leadership and management skills with technical acumen
This fellowship is a program of the Veterans Advanced Energy Project, which is designed to drive US leadership in advanced energy by recruiting, equipping, and empowering military veterans who understand the importance of the evolving energy landscape to our future security and prosperity. The Veterans Advanced Energy Project is managed by the Global Energy Center within the Atlantic Council, a nonpartisan 501(c)3 nonprofit | www.AtlanticCouncil.org.
