About the program

The Michigan Conservative Energy Forum (MCEF) was founded by conservatives who believe that Michigan should adopt a genuine "All of the Above" energy policy that increases our commitment to renewable energy and energy efficiency. MCEF fellows will have the opportunity to learn about Michigan's energy landscape and how conservative energy policies can create jobs, expand our economy, improve national security and responsibly make use of our natural resources. The program will run from July 9 - November 30. During that time, each fellow will choose a topic to research and write about. Fellows will be expected to produce a press release, blog posts, social media content and finally an op-ed suitable for publication. In addition to their independent research, fellows will have the opportunity to meet regularly with the MCEF Leadership Council, join educational meetings with legislators and candidates and participate in grassroots events. The deadline to apply for the program is May 4, 2018. Applicants will be told if they have been accepted into the program or not by May 11, 2018.    


Serving as a fellow with the MCEF really opened my eyes to the importance of energy in Michigan and around the world. This fellowship program also offers great connections with leaders around the state. I cannot recommend the program enough.
— Jake Putala, MCEF Fellowship Class of 2017
