Applications Open for 2024 Charif Souki Global Energy Fellows Program

The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs is excited to announce an open call for applications for the 2024 Charif Souki Global Energy Fellows program. 

The Global Energy Fellows program, named after Charif Souki, Executive Chairman of Tellurian, Inc., is focused on addressing key challenges facing the global energy system and equipping students with the knowledge they need to be leaders in energy and climate policy. The year-long program is designed to challenge students to think critically about relevant energy-related issues and facilitate engagement between Columbia students and CGEP experts. It also provides Columbia’s brightest energy-focused graduates with opportunities to build a career in energy.

Selected students will have the opportunity to attend monthly CGEP luncheons, where they will engage in crucial discussions on energy-related topics alongside Jason Bordoff, CGEP Founding Director, and other esteemed CGEP scholars. Additionally, students will receive full funding for a summer internship of their choice in the energy and climate field. During the first semester, CGEP will extend its support by assisting students in their internship search, providing them access to its extensive professional network.

The program accepts one class of 20 students per year. Students will be notified of their acceptance in December and begin the curriculum in January. To qualify, students must be enrolled as full-time graduate students, including Ph.D. candidates, at Columbia University throughout the program duration.
