Duke students aren’t just tomorrow’s leaders—you’re coming up with inventive ways to learn about and advance solutions for energy and environmental challenges now. That’s why the Nicholas Institute supports a variety of student-led efforts, ranging from Energy Week at Duke to research projects and more.
Each semester, the Nicholas Institute offers a limited amount of funding to Duke student organizations. Student groups will have the opportunity to apply for Spring 2024 funding in January 2024.
The Nicholas Institute also organizes the $10,000 Clean Energy Prize, which supports student innovators to take their projects to the next level.
