Kleinman Summer Fellowships

Make the most of your summer with a fellowship designed for you.  Our Kleinman Birol Fellowship, for example, sends a Penn student to work at the International Energy Agency in Paris. Our fellowship with the Philadelphia Energy Authority helps a student explore energy at home in Philadelphia. And in 2022, we will roll out a third fellowship with ENERGIA, for a student who is interested in the intersection of energy transition and gender.
