The Resurgence Fellowship program will offer a limited number of fellowships to University of Chicago students and provide them with an opportunity to support innovation and business development in the clean energy and sustainability space. Student fellows will work with startups participating in Resurgence, the Polsky Center’s cleantech accelerator program, to support key aspects of business development. The fellowship application is open to all students at the university, provided that they have interest and experience in one or more of the following business areas:
- Financial modeling and projections
- Customer discovery
- Market opportunity assessment
- Investor readiness, including data room staging
In addition to direct work with Resurgence’s cohort of cleantech startups, fellows will have the opportunity to join Resurgence lectures, workshops, and events. Fellows will also be introduced to investors, innovators, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs working in industries relevant to cleantech. Interested students should submit the linked application no later than midnight CT on Sunday, February 25.
Fellowship stipend: $2000
Fellowship timeline: March 4 – May 31
Expected hours/week: 7-8*
Total effort: ~90 hours over the course of 12 weeks; no work required during spring break
* This represents the number of hours per week that fellows will be expected to work on projects for the assigned startup. Time spent attending weekly lectures, workshops, and events, all of which are optional engagements, are not included in this estimate.
