Will Cullen joined the National Committee in August 2021 as a Schwarzman Scholar fellow. During his one-year fellowship, he will focus on the National Committee’s climate-related programming, including Congressional education efforts, the energy Track II dialogue, and the National Committee-Schwarzman Scholars partnership.

At Schwarzman College, he co-organized the Climate Change Forum, which brought in experts to discuss U.S.-China climate change policy, and wrote his capstone report on opportunities for cooperation on low carbon hydrogen technology under the supervision of David Sandalow.

Mr. Cullen holds a Bachelor’s degree in economics and environmental policy, cum laude with honors, from Claremont McKenna College and a Master’s degree in global affairs from Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University. He studied Hindi language as a U.S. Department of State Critical Language Scholar in Jaipur, India and worked as a research fellow at the World Resources Institute (WRI) in Bangalore. He interned remotely at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi where he tracked trade, climate, and security policy in the Indo-Pacific region. He hopes to pursue a career in U.S. foreign policy and climate change cooperation.

In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer and eating his way to New York’s best bagel.
