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.

Kleinman Research Assistants

Each fall the Kleinman Center hires student research assistants to support our ongoing research projects. Students can have their research published by the Center and shared with our audience. We welcome students from all schools and academic levels to apply.
