Breaking the Barriers to Climate. Your Launchpad into Climate Tech.

Penn doesn't have any on-campus recruiting (OCR) for climate innovation, making it difficult to break into climate. We aim to change that. Through our fellowships program, students apply to work with cutting-edge climate startups/companies, gaining exposure, hands-on experience, and connections to the broader climate space while delivering value to companies.

Program Details

  • Groups of 4-5 students work on a semester-long project for a climate tech startup/company
  • Each group is has 1 project lead responsible for liaising between PCV, the company, and the team
  • Projects are diverse and could include anything from software development to design and business development
  • Applications involve a written application and an interview with PCV
