Leslie Townsell

(Closes March 27)
RAY Conservation/Program Assistant, Coastal Wetlands and Coral Reefs
Pew Charitable Trusts

Inspired by efforts to increase racial diversity in conservation and clean energy, the Roger Arliner Young (RAY) Diversity Fellowship Program aims to increase and facilitate environmentally-related career pathways for emerging leaders of color. The RAY Fellowship Program is a paid fellowship designed to equip recent college graduates with the tools, experiences, support, and community they need to become leaders in the conservation and clean energy sectors—one that, in our visions of the future, fully represents, includes, and is led by the diverse communities, perspectives, and experiences of the United States.

This position will be an integral part of the Coastal Wetlands team at Pew and will focus on an exciting body of scientific research and policy development across three countries: Seychelles, Belize, and Costa Rica. In addition, the Fellow will help to scope out the next round of countries for our work and will assist in developing associated partnerships. Candidates should have an interest in environmental policy, environmental and climate justice, coastal habitat protection, and the application of scientific research to inform the policy process.

This is a two-year, full-time fellowship (one year with a one year renewal) starting on or after July 15, 2022.

Applicants must be no more than 1 year out of college and have a Bachelor’s Degree by July 2022 (we are not considering individuals with graduate degrees at this time).

Applications must be submitted to the RAY Fellowship Program no later than March 27, 2022. Transcripts and additional writing samples are not required. If you have questions please see our FAQ page, attend an informational webinar or watch a recording, and any further questions about the application process can be submitted to the RAY Program Coordinator, Maria Johnson, via email at
