academics with the opportunity to travel across the Atlantic for three weeks to undertake independent

In the era of globalization, the formation of sound environmental policies and practices has become an
increasingly collaborative international effort. The free flow of knowledge and ideas among professionals
working toward these collective goals is crucial in order to preserve natural ecosystems and to promote
sustainable development. The McCloy Fellowships in Environmental Policy are intended to foster this spirit of
dialogue and collaborative discovery among Germans and Americans.
The fellowship program welcomes applications from professionals in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors
who are engaged in environmental policy, journalism, and law, as well as those in academia who are
undertaking research that bears significance for environmental policy in the United States, Germany, and
Europe. Past McCloy Fellows have analyzed a wide range of issues, including renewable energy, carbon
markets, electric cars, and corporate environmental responsibility.
Fellows pursue independent research and conduct interviews and meetings as they work on a specific, self-
directed project. The ACG works with its partner organization for the fellowships Ecologic Institute
(www.ecologic.eu) to provide guidance on the development of fellows' itineraries and on potential meeting
partners as appropriate.
