Thank you for your interest in the Dream.Org’s Cleantech and Sustainability Scholarship, made possible with support from Amazon. The Dream.Org cleantech initiative empowers untapped talent to enter the green economy. Dream.Org seeks to nurture people from diverse communities to position them for employment and influence in the clean tech sector, so they can be part of shaping an ecosystem that reduces negative environmental impact and disrupts the disproportionate impact on communities of color.
Dream.Org is an equal opportunity/affirmative action organization and encourages applications from all qualified applicants regardless of race, sex, gender identity, age, disability, religion, national origin, citizenship status, sexual orientation, veteran status, or whether you have been impacted by the criminal justice system. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and strive for a workforce that reflects the populations that we serve. We encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to submit their application with an emphasis on people coming from the Black and Brown and underrepresented communities, Veterans, and individuals with a disability. Therefore, the eligibility criteria are as follows:
Be 18 years of age or older as of the application deadline.
Demonstrate financial need.
Be an underrepresented person pursuing a sustainability role in the cleantech sector, particularly members of the Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Native American or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and Asian communities.
