THE SOLAR READY VETS FELLOWSHIP


The Solar Ready Vets Fellowship extends the highly successful
CORPORATE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM by HIRING OUR HEROES
to the solar industry.

✓ Highly qualified service members are placed with solar industry employers for on-the-job training.
This program supports a smooth transition from active duty to leadership roles in the civilian solar workforce.

✓ This program is offered to employers at no cost. Candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on their specific knowledge and skills, and the preferences of both parties. Through this process, employers gain access to a natural recruitment pipeline of the best and brightest transitioning military talent, while gaining a deeper understanding of the veteran labor market.

The Corporate Fellowship Timeline:

The fellowship features a 12-week syllabus and runs three times a year at select military installations and in host cities around the country. Each cohort consists of 15–30 active duty service members and may also include veterans and military spouses in select locations. Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Candidates then undergo exclusive on-the-job training at their host company, gaining firsthand experience in the private sector. This real-world experience is augmented by weekly educational sessions for the cohort, held in a classroom setting.
