The High Meadows Fellowship program places recent Princeton graduates in two-year positions with nonprofit organizations that aim to protect the environment and build environmental sustainability, or that bring an environmental focus to building community capacity and increasing the self-sufficiency of community residents, with the awareness that true sustainability can only flourish in a just society. Through their work with these nonprofits, fellows have an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience while exploring a career in the public interest and making a genuine contribution toward advancing the organizations' objectives. The positions with the Environmental Defense Fund, The Food Project, and the Vermont Community Foundation are located in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Burlington, Vt. The High Meadows fellows have been able to build on the knowledge and skills they developed at Princeton and have found new opportunities to develop and extend their expertise. Their responsibilities have included research, report writing, developing and promoting public policy proposals, working closely with diverse groups of people, and testifying before legislative committees.
