Stanback Fellowship Program

The Stanback Fellowship Program is a partnership between the Nicholas School of the Environment and non-profit environmental organizations. The purpose of the program is to provide students with significant project-based learning experiences in energy, conservation, advocacy, policy, research and applied resource management. The program is made possible by the generous support of Fred and Alice Stanback and projects are designed to fully engage students in learning opportunities for 11 weeks during the summer. All current Duke undergraduate and graduate students who will be continuing as enrolled students the following Fall semester are welcome to apply for a Stanback Fellowship. Opportunities are located throughout the U.S., and fellows receive $6,000 in funding to support their experience. To be eligible, you must:

  • Be a Duke student.
  • Be eligible to work in the United States. Foreign Nationals should check with Duke Visa Services regarding eligibility.
  • Have one full semester remaining at Duke following the summer experience.
Positions & application instructions will be posted on Handshake. All students should request to be added to the Stanback mailing list.
