Three graduate fellowships in clean energy are associated with the Schatz Energy Research Center. Each fellowship provides $15,000 in financial support for one academic year. Fellows are also employed for 10 hours per week during the academic year, as research assistants on Center projects.
Student research assistants
Student research assistants (SRAs) work in a wide range of project areas — including microgrids, bioenergy, transportation, offshore wind, solar power, and off-grid energy access. Summer research opportunities are usually posted in March-April. Other positions are added as needed throughout the year.

Our education team brings renewable energy programs to the local community via onsite tours and workshops, offsite classroom presentations, and participation in community events. Volunteer docents are key members of this outreach program!
Docents enjoy working with diverse age groups, are comfortable with public speaking, and have a background or strong interest in science and education. Docents serve for a minimum of one year, volunteering 1-5 hours per week (including training in the fall semester).
Students in all majors are invited to apply. Familiarity with renewable energy technologies, experience working with youth, and multilingualism are all highly welcome skill sets.
