CLEAR Fellowship

Do you have an idea for a project that would make your community more resilient?

The CLEAR Fellowship lasts up to 12 months. It supports and funds CLEAR program graduates on a rolling basis, either individually or in teams, to pursue local resilience projects costing up to $1,500. Participants will receive support and technical assistance to complete their projects from Catalyst Miami.

To apply: Email Mayra Cruz

Participants will be required to:

  • Explore how their projects could influence local climate resilience
  • Submit an application, project proposal, and a proposed budget
  • Track at least three key metrics related to their projects during their project
  • Have regular check-ins (every month at minimum) with Catalyst Miami’s Climate Resilience Program Manager
  • Evaluate the fellowship program at the completion of their 12-month fellowship
  • Communicate with Catalyst Miami detailing the project, lessons learned, metrics tracked, and how funds were spent for reporting purposes

Some examples of fellowship projects are:

  • A youth climate summer camp
  • Hosting events to organize residents around a particular policy
  • Creating a community emergency preparedness plan
  • Creating a rain garden to collect stormwater and reduce flooding
  • Creating and managing a community food garden


Fellowship awards are limited; selection criteria will depend on availability of funds, project feasibility, need for the project, and other factors. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
