Summer Energy Fellowships: UROP program opportunities

Tuesday, March 03, 2015

The University of Michigan Energy Institute (UMEI), in partnership with the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) seeks to provide selected U-M undergraduates at all years of study with a $4,000 stipend for a 10-week fellowship to work under the supervision of a University of Michigan faculty member in science, technology, and policy fields related to the following research areas:

  • energy policy, economics, and societal impact
  • carbon-free energy sources
  • energy storage and utilization
  • transportation and fuels

Suitable mentors may be identified from the UMEI faculty affiliates. Participating undergraduates will perform research and receive mentoring while they work on the great challenge of our times: meeting the energy needs to our society in a sustainable manner. The UMEI-UROP partnership engages undergraduates who express interest in energy issues and encourage them to advance their education in the field.

In addition to research with a UMEI faculty affiliate, students will participate in UROP activities, which include weekly seminars and other community-building opportunities for participants and conclude with poster presentations at a symposium.

The UMEI-UROP program seeks to attract a [broadly] diverse student population, which would include women and historically underrepresented students as well as first generation college students and students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. The program also offers workshops and resources to assist students with the graduate school application process.

This fellowship is open to current undergraduate students attending the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Campus. Students may not be enrolled in more than one spring or one summer course while participating in the fellowship program. Enrollment in spring/summer courses is highly discouraged for program participants.
