Duke University Stanback Internship Program is generously funded by Duke alumni Fred and Alice Stanback. The Stanback Internship Program provides Duke students with significant project-based learning experiences in energy, conservation, advocacy, policy, research, and applied resource management.

The Stanback Internship Program is open to any Duke student - undergraduate, graduate, and international students - who will be enrolled in Fall 2018 classes. Internships are located throughout the US, and interns receive a $5,000 payment.
