We invite you to help us meet the energy challenge head-on by supporting our multidisciplinary research, education and public engagement activities. Gifts support educational opportunities for future energy leaders, ongoing student programs, innovative research projects and public engagement.
When you partner with the Wisconsin Energy Institute, you support:
We encourage students to engage with energy inside and outside the classroom, and connect them to resources that foster leadership beyond curriculum. A scholarship fund for energy leaders provides financial assistance to students taking innovative approaches to their education. Student competitions encourage interdisciplinary leadership and innovation, and offer funding for student entrepreneurs to pursue their creative solutions. Our Certificate in Engineering for Energy Sustainability offers undergraduate students a suite of courses addressing energy sustainability with firm roots in real-world design and engineering practices.
Our seed-grant program provides funding to bridge well established areas of excellence at UW-Madison with the purpose of developing new, multidisciplinary approaches to energy research. The grants support faculty and researchers addressing critical, emerging or ongoing energy research issues that have impacts on renewable energy.
Our public events, workshops and informal educational activities present energy research in a way that is accessible and interesting to a broad array of audiences. Since 2008, UW-Madison has hosted an annual Summit aimed at engaging the community with energy research and development on campus and beyond. The event brings stakeholders to UW-Madison for discussions around pressing technical and policy-related energy issues facing the world. The program unites industry leaders, researchers, policymakers and students to share perspectives on the future of energy.
Your support can help equip energy research laboratories, increasing our ability to make discoveries in energy storage and distribution, integrated energy systems, solar energy and bioenergy.
