The $20,000 CRB Fellowship ($10,000 per academic year) is one of the ways the Center encourages the development of business leaders who will redefine business for a sustainable future and address the great challenges of our time. Started in 2011, the CRB Fellows are part of a growing network of graduates leading the movement to integrate sustainability into their work and the practices of the firms that employ them. The fellowship is funded by retired Goldman Sachs Partner and CRB Senior Advisory Board Member Scott Pinkus.

CRB Fellowship Criteria and Application Information:
We look for passion, leadership potential, and a demonstrated commitment to corporate responsibility. You should also have a career plan in mind that integrates social or environmental considerations in the business sector to address roadblocks to sustainability.
