Undergraduate Summer Internships

The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment (ACEE) invites undergraduates to apply for paid summer internships. Funding will be provided for research projects, particularly field work and laboratory research, performed under the auspices of faculty doing research in areas related to the ACEE. If approved, current freshmen, sophomores, or juniors will receive a $4,000 stipend for eight weeks of summer research and up to $4,000 for research-related expenses. Each applicant must recruit a Princeton faculty member to supervise and host the student in his/her lab. Research must begin by June 27, 2016 and last at least eight weeks. Applications may be submitted through the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE).  Please submit a proposal of no more than two pages that describes your project and clearly identifies its applicability to the ACEE mission of providing technical solutions to ensure our energy and environmental future.  In addition, students are required to submit: a detailed budget for research-related expenses (up to $4000), a CV/resume, a transcript, and an endorsement from the faculty member you will be working with (a pdf of an email from the faculty member uploaded to the application is fine). The priority deadline for applications is February 19, 2016 and the final deadline is March 11, 2016. Summaries of projects funded in previous years can be found on our website. Typically, a student self-initiates a project with a faculty member of his/her choice.  If you are a student who is looking for an idea for a summer research project, these opportunities are available with faculty members in their labs.
