About

ThinkEnergy is an innovative, student-centric program focused on experimental learning for both undergraduates and graduate students. It exposes students to a wide variety of energy topics including technology, policy, entrepreneurship, and research. We believe the skills our students develop through this program will help them become leaders in whatever fields they choose to pursue. 

ThinkEnergy connects students with faculty, industry professionals, entrepreneurs, investors, and government officials. It often gives students an opportunity to operate outside of their comfort zones, developing competencies that are dissimilar to what they learn in their courses. Past students have built solar installations, launched startups, published policy reports, led research projects, sold clean energy credits, repaired wind turbines, attended Department of Energy (DOE) conferences, and completed a variety of energy-related internships.

There are six main elements of the ThinkEnergy Fellowship:

  1. Weekly exposure to energy professionals through “Think Tanks;”
  2. Entrepreneurship;
  3. Prototyping;
  4. Individual research and projects;
  5. Campus involvement; and
  6. Real-world experience.

Information sessions about the fellowship will take place:

  • Thursday, Feb. 7, at 3 p.m. in Peter B. Lewis Building, Room 203
  • Monday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m. in Olin Building, Room 408
  • Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 4 p.m. in Olin Building, Room 408
  • Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 4 p.m. in Thwing Center, Room 224

Eligibility

Applicants must be full-time students at CWRU during the 2019-20 academic year to apply.

Application Procedure

Apply through the Great Lakes Energy Institute website by Friday, March 8, at 5 p.m.

Interviews will take place between Wednesday, March 20, and Thursday, April 4.

Value of the Award

Graduate students are eligible for modest stipends. Undergraduate students will be matched to paid internship or research opportunities.
