Illinois Power Agency Fellowship Program

The Illinois Power Agency ("IPA") Fellowship Program is a one-year paid program that provides fellows with an unparalleled opportunity to contribute their skills and talents in the clean energy sector. With the recent enactment of the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (Public Act 102-0662), this is an exciting time to join the IPA and play a pivotal role in supporting the Agency to put Illinois at the forefront of the clean energy future.

At the IPA, we believe in developing a talent pipeline of the next generation of leaders – individuals who are innovative, mission-driven, and passionate about working to build an equitable clean energy future for all. Through this one-year Fellowship Program, the IPA seeks to connect with recent graduates or early-career professionals working in clean energy and/or environmental planning.

Through the program, fellows will get specialized training and valuable experience to launch a career in the clean energy sector. Additionally, fellows will have the opportunity to support leaders and subject-matter experts in implementing the Illinois Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, produce energy-related white papers and presentations, prepare reports and stakeholder correspondence, and develop innovative solutions to advance IPA's work in providing a clean, reliable, cost-effective, and equitable future for residents and businesses across Illinois.
