Fellowship opportunities with the D. E. Shaw group

I work at the D. E. Shaw group, and wanted to share that we’ll be hosting an additional two fellowships this August. As you may know, the D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm with more than $50 billion in investment capital. We were hoping you’d be able to share these opportunities with your students.
The D. E. Shaw Exploration Fellowship takes place from August 13 to 15 and brings together talented and intellectually curious women enrolled in Ph.D. programs. The D. E. Shaw Nexus Fellowship takes place from August 19 to 21 and brings together exemplary college juniors for a unique educational opportunity. During both fellowships, fellows will receive an introduction to our firm, insights into our rigorous approach to finance, and several professional and social networking opportunities. Fellows will receive a stipend, accommodations, and travel to and from New York City.
If you have students who may be interested in and available for these opportunities, you can encourage them to apply by directing them to our Exploration and Nexus Fellowship websites. We will be accepting applications until June 30. Thank you in advance for your support, and please feel free to reach out directly with any questions.

Summer Jobs for Students to Protect the Environment


The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We’ve run campaigns for USPIRG, Environment America, the Human Rights Campaign, the Sierra Club, and Fair Share Alliance.

This summer, we are running an office in Los Angeles to build support for Environment California’s campaign to ban polystyrene, or what most folks call styrofoam.

For decades our society has depended on products that we don’t need, and have known that we shouldn’t be using – like foam cups and take out containers. These products end up in our rivers, lakes, and oceans where they injure and kill birds and marine animals, like sea turtles.

We need to pass a statewide ban on polystyrene to protect our environment. We are working to give our elected senators and assemblymembers the support and backing from the public that they need to stand up to powerful special interests. 

We are hiring staff this summer to build public support to defend the places that we love, the air we breathe, and the water we drink! As paid campaign staff, you  will build grassroots power, learn the building blocks of political organizing, and work closely with our senior staff management team.

This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making up to $20/hour.
