Clarkson Sustainable Energy Summer 2010 Internships

The Clarkson Honors Program and The Center for Sustainable Energy Systems would like to formally announce this Call for Summer Undergraduate Research Proposals in Sustainable Energy at Clarkson University for 2010.




The National Grid Endowed Fund for Student Research Opportunities in Sustainable Energy was established by National Grid in the fall of 2009 to support undergraduate research at Clarkson University (Clarkson News). National Grid is an international energy delivery company and delivers electricity to approximately 3.3 million customers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island.  It is the largest distributor of natural gas in the northeastern U.S., serving approximately 3.4 million customers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island. National Grid also owns over 4,000 megawatts of contracted electricity generation that provides power to over one million LIPA customers.   




The endowment is designed to fund summer internships for Clarkson undergraduates to conduct research in sustainable energy areas on the Clarkson campus.  The internship covers room, a weekly food allowance and a $1000 stipend.



Summer internships begin May 17, 2010 and continue for 10 weeks until the end of July 2010.  Applications can be submitted until April 5, 2010 and decisions will be made by April 12, 2010.



The application requires an application page, a copy of your resume, a 2-page concise description of the project, which includes the mentor(s), objectives of the proposed project and what will be accomplished during the summer.  An oral presentation at the SURE conference and a written summary report of the work accomplished is required at the end of the summer.



Applications are open to all undergraduates that are involved in a sustainable energy project. Please send all applications to Professor Ken Visser, Box 5725.  Electronic are strongly encouraged.
