Applicants should submit two writing samples:
1) OP-ED: A 500-1000 word argumentative essay or op-ed on a subject of your choice that demonstrates an ability to make a focused argument in a clear, convincing, and accessible way. This writing sample is evaluated for evidence of critical thinking and general writing skills.
2) RESEARCH: A research paper, technical report, or other analysis (5-10 pages max). This does not need to have been published, but should demonstrate an ability to research and analyze a subject in more depth. It is recommended, but not required, that the topic of the research paper be relevant to the Project Drawdown's mission. Papers utilizing quantitative and qualitative analysis of climate solutions are particularly encouraged.
PDF Format is preferred.
