The national SolarCorps Fellowship Program is an opportunity for highly motivated and enthusiastic people to join GRID Alternatives for a one-year, paid term of service to their community.

SolarCorps Fellows gain valuable experience in the solar and non-profit industries to help launch their renewable energy careers, while making significant contributions to GRID and the low-income communities we serve. The Corporation for National and Community Service has provided partial funding for the program through AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA since 2006.

To date, more than 200 people have served as fellows in GRID’s SolarCorps program.

Positions are available in areas such as construction, client outreach, and volunteer engagement, and include a stipend and healthcare.
