Students interested in sustainability and energy can apply to attend the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy (SISE) hosted by the University of Illinois at Chicago Energy Initiative from August 3-16, 2017.
There is no program fee for participants. Everyone that attends receives free lodging, and many receive some support for travel. Applications are accepted through June 15 from senior-level undergrads, grad students and professionals from all academic backgrounds.
The Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy is a two-week "boot camp" for future decision makers eager to join the sustainability and energy revolution happening around the globe. During weekdays, SISE'ers participate in high-level talks, visit energy and sustainability sites, and network. During evenings and weekends, they work collaboratively on a research project and enjoy exploring Chicago. In 2017, SISE will focus on transportation, specifically the concept of mobility and the the future of transportation systems. The program will engage experts and diverse ideas.
Participants are chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants from across the country. Diversity is one of the strongest features of the program, with participants representing a broad range of backgrounds and expertise. For more information, visit uicsise.com.
