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.
Contests, entrepreneurship openings or other opportunities with imminent deadlines. Last update 2016-05-31.
The Bass Connections initiative provides students across Duke with greater exposure to inquiry across the disciplines, partnership with unlikely collaborators, sustained mentorship in teams, and the chance to experience the intersections of the academy and the broader world.
Find Energy Internships and Jobs
Energy internships are a great way to augment your education with real-world experience and contacts in your chosen field. Duke University offers a number of tools for finding, securing and funding internships, and identifying job opportunities as well.
Duke’s interdisciplinary programs provide a wide variety of unique learning opportunities for students interested in energy. Drawing on rich resources in science and technology, economics and business, markets and policy, and more, Duke offers multiple educational pathways to understanding the energy system in all its complexity.
