The Energy Internship Program connects Duke students from all majors, backgrounds, and degree programs to summer internship opportunities across the energy sector, including at start-ups, utilities, renewable energy developers, large firms, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
Duke students, welcome to your one-stop shop for planning a summer of energy exploration.
Whether you seek an energy internship, research experience, or service-learning opportunity, this directory has you covered!
Each semester, the Energy Initiative offers a limited amount of funding to help energy-focused clubs and other student organizations develop events and projects that benefit the larger community of energy students at Duke. Requests for proposals are issued at the start of the fall and spring semesters.
In spring 2019, the Duke University Energy Initiative launched a new Energy Internship Program. We maintained a list of energy companies interested in internship applications from Duke undergraduate and graduate students, and invited current sophomores and juniors ONLY to apply for supplementary financial assistance for unpaid or low-paid energy internship opportunities that they found on this list or elsewhere. We will re-open the program in early spring 2020, so watch this space for more information.
Duke University undergraduates seeking paid energy research opportunities on campus may apply for funding through the Office of Undergraduate Research Support (URS), thanks to a partnership with the Duke University Energy Initiative. Through the Promoting Opportunities With Energy Research (POWER Program), a limited number of students may receive up to $400 per semester to work with a faculty member on their energy research.
