ACEP Summer Internship Program

Program Overview

The ACEP Summer Internship Program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in challenging and exciting energy research in the Arctic through a 10-week program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The internship cohort is composed of students from diverse geographies and disciplines. Students are mentored by an ACEP researcher in a wide range of topics including microgrid power systems integration, electric vehicles in the North and solar technologies. The program offers a competitive stipend, on-campus housing, field trips and travel to and from Fairbanks.
