the Geballe fellowship seeks recent graduates of advanced degree programs in business or environmental management for a two-year position with edf. Working under the guidance of a corporate partnerships managing director, the fellow will support edf’s work in three ways.  first, fellows will work on ongoing long-term projects – such as our green returns initiative with kohlberg kravis roberts & co. (kkr), the carlyle group (carlyle) and other leaders in the private equity sector to make measuring and improving environmental performance a standard practice across the industry.  Second, fellows may assist on “rapid response” efforts to work with leading corporations on short-term projects designed to test the potential for impact and industry-level change.  finally, fellows may also support our new project development efforts to identify and research new partnership ideas.  at the end of two-year fellowship, the fellow is expected to “graduate” from edf with new environmental expertise and project management skills and move on to a position with a leading corporation. edf assists the fellow in finding such opportunities through mentoring, access to industry experts, and travel to meetings and conferences.
