Industry, Professional and University Opportunities:

Insight into the human dimension of energy use is key to better understanding future energy trends and how to act effectively to manage them.

  • If you are interested in meeting regularly with colleagues across CSU to discuss the topic of human behavior and energy use, brainstorm new ideas, and work towards collaborative projects in this area, please contact Jason Quinn, Operating Director of the Energy Institute.

Funding Opportunities:

  • Do you have an active NSF award or one that expired less than five years ago? If you were a principal investigator (PI), co-PI, postdoc or senior personnel on the award or project, then you may be eligible for NSF’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program.
  • You and your team receive mentoring, entrepreneurial training and $50,000 for customer discovery. If you are interested, contact Jason Quinn at the CSU Energy Institute. Learn more about our Tech-2-Market Training

Student Opportunities:

The CSU Energy Institute (EI) has received a donation to support a limited number of university research and industry fellowships for both undergraduate and graduate students in areas aligned with the Institute’s missions of energy and climate solutions.

Summer fellowship activities are not limited to traditional laboratory research & development and can encompass topics as diverse as artistic endeavors, field work, communications, marketing, administrative support, entrepreneurship, and energy policy. This program will fund a mix of both faculty-led research fellowships and industry immersion fellowships.

Application details for the 2024 Summer Fellowship Program are coming soon.
