ARPA-E recruits summer scholars who have a unique combination of technical and business skills to assist in defining commercialization pathways for high-impact technology development programs. This internship opportunity offers experience in advancing the transition of cutting-edge energy technologies to market applications in a fast-paced environment.

ARPA-E’s Summer Scholars Program is designed to prepare ARPA-E funded technologies to achieve maximum impact and return on investment for ARPA-E project teams, stakeholders, and our Nation’s taxpayers. This internship provides a unique opportunity to be mentored by and interface with the ARPA-E Technology-to-Market team, the ARPA-E Program Directors, and ARPA-E Fellows.

We are seeking graduate students and recent graduates interested in:

  • Researching market trends, cross-industry collaboration opportunities, and go-to-market strategies
  • Assisting in developing techno-economic analysis
  • Performing stakeholder analysis to identify technology adopters and laggards
  • Analyzing system reliability at varying levels or renewable penetration

Previous internship projects included:

  • Identifying Technology Pathways for Zero Carbon Aviation
  • Sustainable Pathway for Fusion Commercialization
  • Developing a Framework to Evaluate Energy Storage and Conversion Technologies that Rely on Low-cost Renewable Power
  • Managing the Risks of Stochastic Grid Resources to Optimize Reliability
  • Leveraging Soil Carbon Markets to Drive Innovation, Carbon Removal and Management in Agricultural Systems
  • Emissions Analyses Across the Bioeconomy: Carbon Sequestration and Mitigation Potentials for Biofuels
  • L4 Connected Autonomous Market Assessment
  • Greenhouse Gas Impacts Modeling
  • Future Markets and Current Economics for Renewable Hydrogen

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is an agency within the U.S. Department of Energy that funds creative, out-of-the-box, transformational energy technologies that are too early stage for private investment. ARPA-E programs provide top energy researchers with funding, technical assistance, and tech-to-market guidance to radically improve U.S. energy security, energy efficiency, and environmental well-being.
