You are invited to apply for the following Energy Entrepreneurship Fellows Program, if you qualify.
The objective of the Energy Entrepreneurship Fellows Program is to launch new green energy ventures in NC.  Four fellowships of $40,000 each will be awarded to students graduating in the Class of 2011.

There are two different aspects to advancing the green energy economy in North Carolina. One is to improve the energy efficiency of existing North Carolina businesses—which saves money, makes North Carolina businesses more competitive, reduces the strain on the state's existing energy infrastructure, and reduces environmental impacts. The second need is to support the creation of new clean energy technology manufacturers, installers, and energy providers in North Carolina, which will fuel economic growth and job creation in the state.  

The Duke University Energy Entrepreneurship Fellows Program will help solve one of the hurdles for entrepreneurs who wish to start new clean energy businesses in North Carolina by providing a 12-month fellowship to recent graduates to pursue the launch of a live clean energy venture. Drawing on the extensive resources of Duke University, along with funding from the NC State Energy Office, the Fellowship would provide financial, logistical, and intellectual resources over a 12-month period to assist recent graduates in launching clean energy businesses in North Carolina.

These fellowship program is be led by a team of faculty experts and administrative staff that bring together energy management and entrepreneurship technical expertise, proven success in running similar student internship and fellowship programs, and relationships with potential employer partners across North Carolina.  Duke University is uniquely positioned to help North Carolina's green economy grow. Tapping into our strengths of cross-disciplinary education we are, and have been, training the future skilled workforce that will help lead the transition to a sustainable energy future.
