Sanford and the Energy Initiative Provide Opportunities for Summer Internships


Deadline: extended to November 28, 2016

The Sanford School and the Energy Initiative will provide summer internship opportunities offered through the Program on Global Policy and Governance and the program-related scholarships provided by the Energy Initiative.

As participants in the internships, co-sponsored by the Program on Global Policy and Governance in Geneva and the Energy Initiative, students participate in a summer internship and an intensive, one-week course, giving program Fellows unparalleled access to U.N. agencies and other leading Geneva-based institutions. Participants customize their experiences by choosing one of three policy tracks: Environment, Energy, and Economics; Global Health; or Humanitarian Action: Human Rights, Refugees, and Crisis Response. Check out this short Geneva Program video for a glimpse into life on the program.

To support Duke University students’ participation in the Program on Global Policy and Governance, the Energy Initiative provides a program scholarship to a limited number of graduate students whose internships focus on energy-related issues. Students can easily apply for the Energy Initiative funding as part of the Program on Global Policy and Governance’s online application.

The application deadline for the Summer 2017 Program is Monday, Nov. 14. Contact with questions.
