RCE Greater Atlanta is proud to announce the inaugural class of SDG Futures Fellows for the 2022-2023 academic year.  The SDG Futures Fellowship, funded by a grant from the Atlanta Global Research & Education Collaborative (AGREC) as well as a donation from Georgia Tech's Center for International Business Education & Research (CIBER), is a student fellowship program, co-developed and co-led by students and staff from Georgia Institute of Technology and Kennesaw State University (KSU). The program was inspired by KSU’s Distinguished SDG Ambassador Program, which fosters youth leadership and provides students with the opportunity to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their local and campus communities.

The Fellowship will provide an eight-month leadership and professional development experience to 28 fellows - students and young professionals affiliated with nine higher education institutions (HEIs) that are members of the Regional Center of Expertise (RCE) Greater Atlanta. The fellowship program uses the Global Goals (SDGs) and the Global RCE Network as a framework for problem-based learning focused on local sustainability challenges. In addition to preparing fellows to pursue careers that have an impact or incorporate SDG impact into other fields of work, the program promotes long-term partnerships between Fellows, community-based and nonprofit organizations, HEIs, and the RCE Greater Atlanta network.
