The REN (Renewable Energy Network) seeks outstanding candidates for the 2012 Carson REN fellowship awards for scholarship in renewable energy science, technology, economics, business, policy or other renewable energy-related field. The fellowship is designed to complement and enhance training outside of the university laboratory and classroom to assist students in preparing to address local, regional, national and global energy challenges.
The Carson/REN fellowship provides a $5,000 stipend to students for a three-month summer position with a Federal research laboratory or industrial organization involved with issues of sustainable and renewable energy.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR SUMMER 2012 FELLOWSHIPS IS MARCH 30, 2012!
The program is open to Masters or Ph.D. candidates who have completed one year of graduate school (students are eligible to apply at start of second semester)
All application materials are submitted online. Students may work on their application over time and save updated versions, but it will not be received until "Submit" is selected at the bottom of the form. Once "Submit" is selected, emails will be automatically generated to your adviser and reference containing instructions for them to upload their letter of recommendation.
If you plan to wait until the deadline to submit your application, we recommend you contact your references much earlier to let them know that 1) they will be asked to upload a letter, and 2) instructions will be sent to them once you submit your application. References will have one week after the application deadline to submit their letters.
Many Federal research laboratories offer additional financial support through summer employment, internships, and other means. Applicants are encouraged to contact these laboratories directly.
