SEED Undergraduate Fellowship Program

Do you enjoy discussing complex issues with folks from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to try to create a more just and regenerative world? The SEED Undergraduate Fellowship Program is a year-long sustainability leadership program that challenges students to explore diverse perspectives, create meaningful relationships, develop a critical consciousness and serve as positive agents of sustainability.

As a SEED Fellow, you will:

Read and learn about sustainability and leadership

Design, build and launch a sustainability impact project

Build relationships with sustainability resesarchers, practitioners and leaders

SEED Fellows will leave the program not only with the title "Regis SEED Fellow" on their resume, but more importantly with an impact project, practical leadership tools, extensive sustainability knowledge and connections with each other and other sustainability practitioners who may be potential employers. 



Becoming a SEED Fellow

Fellows are required to take one 3-credit class in the fall and one 3-credit class in the spring (AND3900/AND3901). This Fellowship is a commitment to a community of learners and practitioners who want to change the world for the better – it will require time, dedication and enthusiasm.

The Fellowship is recommended for students considering careers or further education in diverse fields including business, health care, education, journalism, sciences, government, nonprofit work and technology – we not only welcome all perspectives, but believe they are the key to creative and unique solutions.

The Fellowship Program is available to students with sophomore standing or above. Interested students must submit an application to the program, which includes:

  • Two short essays
  • Resume
  • Academic transcript
  • A faculty, staff member or employer who agrees to be a character reference for you
