Princeton in Africa Fellowships

Whole industries and career paths have emerged to control the natural resources and energy we use, creating a new category of jobs with the label “green collar.” Green jobs aren’t just for environmentalists; they require people with construction, science, and engineering backgrounds, as well as […]
