The Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern University (ISEN) is dedicated to the growth and support of education, research and outreach for energy and sustainability across the Northwestern community. ISEN’s mission is to catalyze the development of transformational science, technology, education and policy for sustainability and energy.
ISEN collaborates with the Office of Undergraduate Research through the URG program to provide summer research grants for undergraduates studying sustainability and energy topics. Summer grants provide an unrestricted $3,500 to cover research and living expenses for full-time summer projects. Please note: Students must place ISEN in the proposal's short title when applying through the Provost’s website to allow for quick identification as an ISEN proposal.
