About the Role
The Reducetarian Fellowship is designed to foster a more diverse, sustainable, and impactful movement by empowering bright, passionate, and ambitious young advocates and innovators to transform our food system. This exciting new program is for exceptional New York City- and Washington DC-area undergraduate and graduate students who are eager to create a more sustainable, healthy, and compassionate world.
The one-year experience is designed to equip and encourage students to pursue a career focused on combating industrial animal agriculture. Each fellow receives a $7,500 stipend to support their participation in the program, and one-on-one mentorship from Fellowship staff throughout the year.
A central goal of this program is to increase the representation of marginalized groups in the mainstream movement to reform the food system. We thus encourage BIPOC students, LGBTQIA+ students, students with disabilities, students who have been impacted by the criminal legal system, and low-income students to apply, as well as other students with reduced access to resources and opportunities for any reason.
All applicants must be:
U.S. citizen or permanent resident
Undergraduate or graduate student at the time of application
Able to physically attend weekly meetings in Washington, DC / New York CIty
The Reducetarian Fellowship is a hands-on clinical training experience designed to provide students with job readiness training similar to what would be given in an educational environment. As such, we do not require prior experience with or specific knowledge about topics relevant to the program.
We are looking for students who are self-motivated and eager to make an impact using the skills and experience they would gain from this program. Qualities sought include (but are not limited to):
Robust interest in creating a more sustainable, healthy, and humane food system
Interest in the Reducetarian philosophy and/or effective altruism
Ability to receive constructive feedback and implement changes in response
Growth mindset (the belief that new skills can be developed through hard work, good strategies, and high-quality input from others) Ambition, openness, humility, and integrity
Initial Applications close March 31st for NYC and April 15th for DC.
