We just received an update from Duke that they've extended the deadline for companies to apply for fully funded clean energy interns to February 4th. Companies with project ideas would select from graduate-level students at Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment, Fuqua School of Business and Pratt School of Engineering. Here are more details about the program and where to apply...
Oftentimes companies find themselves with more projects than available time, personnel or finances. If your company has projects in the energy efficiency, energy improvement and management or renewable energy space than partnering with Duke University may allow you and your company to devote more time to these projects in the coming year.
Duke University received a NC State Energy grant to financially support 18 energy or green economy summer 2011 internships and 4 post-graduate 9-12 month fellowships. These students can provide support/direction to a myriad of energy/green business projects that can have a measurable impact on your bottom line by possibly reducing energy use, implementing an integrated energy plan or building a business case for renewable energy and associated technologies. Any NC company projects within the energy and/or renewable energy space are welcome.
Companies with project ideas would select from graduate-level students at Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment, Fuqua School of Business and Pratt School of Engineering. Companies’ interview and select their interns and fellows and the energy grant financially supports these students. Our grant targets NC companies located in economically distressed counties (Tier 1 & 2 counties) or companies whose work primarily benefits these areas across the state.
