The third year of the E2 1 Hotels Fellowship officially launched this week with applications for the 2019–2020 class being accepted now!

We are thrilled to once again find 10 new business leaders with visions to impact our country’s most pressing environmental issues.

In our first two years, these leaders have made a real difference in state and local levels throughout the nation. Our fellows are underway working in states across every region in the U.S., from developing a practical guide to build out EV stations in Chicago to working with dry land farmers in Colorado to promote sustainable soil health practices. Those are just two examples of the work underway now as part of the current fellowship year, and you can read more about all 20 fellows here.

This year we are awarding $20,000 each to 10 individuals to implement their project idea that lies at the intersection of the economy and the environment.

The deadline to submit an application for the 2019–2020 class is September 15.

The fellowship program wouldn’t be possible without all of E2’s members. Many of you have served as mentors to our fellows, and reviewed applications and other material for this program. Thanks to you, E2 has grown into an active business network in all regions of the country that has the expertise and breadth to support a diverse set of projects.

You can find updated program information and how to apply for the 2019–2020 cycle at and we urge you share this opportunity with your networks!
