Bow Seat and the Future Blue Youth Council Announce the Newest Cohort of Fellowship Program GranteesMay 30, 2023
In 2021, Bow Seat collaborated with our Future Blue Youth Council (FBYC) to launch the Fellowship Grant Program. Established by youth, for youth, the Fellowship provides mentorship and funding to peers who are addressing environmental challenges in their local communities. Fellowship projects educate and engage the public around critical issues, and integrate the creative arts and conservation.
We are thrilled to introduce the 11 new grantees selected for the Fellowship Grant Program so far this year! These grantees represent 7 countries–Cameroon, Colombia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, United Kingdom, and United States–and will be addressing pressing environmental problems such as plastic pollution, textile waste, clean energy, water scarcity, and threatened species in impactful and creative ways. Each grantee was awarded up to $2,500 and was paired with FBYC members who will provide ongoing mentorship and support with project management, communications and outreach, partnership development, fundraising, and more.

Since 2021, Bow Seat has committed more than $25,000 through the Fellowship Grant Program to support inspiring young leaders from around the world who are committed to and passionate about taking action to protect our blue planet.
