Summer Fellowships

The Sweaty Penguin is an award-winning comedy climate program presented by PBS’s national climate initiative Peril and Promise. Through late-night-comedy-style monologues and in-depth expert interviews, The Sweaty Penguin cuts through the doom-and-gloom of the climate conversation. Our team is a small group of motivated, creative, multi-talented students and recent graduates working remotely across the continent with a variety of skill sets, but a shared passion for making climate change less overwhelming, less politicized, and more fun.

We look forward to building our team further through two part-time paid summer fellowships, targeted toward the college classes of 2026 and 2027. Both fellowships provide opportunities for motivated students to learn about climate issues, develop their writing and communication skills, and gain professional leadership opportunities at an early age. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, select applicants will be hired to longer term part-time paid positions for the school year.

To apply, please click on a job posting below, fill out the form, and attach your resume and completed writing prompt. We prefer you choose whichever position best suits your skill sets, interests, and career goals, but you may apply to both positions if they are equally good fits.

Applications officially close at 11:59pm ET on Friday, April 21, 2023. However, we plan to conduct interviews and offer positions on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply early!
