In conjunction with the Haas Center, the TomKat Center will provide stipends to Stanford undergraduates who wish to work on a sustainable energy project with significant social impact.
Spend 8 weeks next summer working as a team with fellow undergraduate students on a multifaceted project that will provide a blueprint for the generation of renewable energy. You will be based at Stanford under the direction of TomKat personnel but will interact with a broad range of mentors, professionals, and experts on the technology, policy, and business aspects of the project. You will gain hands-on experience in all aspects of the project's management. Fellowships are Cardinal-Quarter-eligible. The fellowship will run from 6/24/2019 through 8/16/2019.
The summer 2019 Energy Impact project will explore the technical, economic, and regulatory considerations for siting renewable energy generating resources; like solar, wind, and biomass, in California agricultural operations (farms, orchards, dairies,..) with a particular focus on defining possible statewide programs and initiatives to accelerate their adoption and deliver tangible benefits to the farmers.
Undergraduate students (any year or major) who have a passion for renewable energy and who enjoy working on projects that have tangible social value. Some relevant technical and project management experience or skills would be a plus. Creativity, curiosity, resourcefulness, and the ability to work in collaboration with others are paramount.
