Summer Institute of Sustainability and Energy

The Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy (SISE) is a two-week "boot camp" for future decision makers eager to join the sustainability and energy revolution happening around the globe. It's been held annually in August since 2011 and boasts 300 alumni.

Selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, SISE Fellows (or SISE'ers) join us from around the country each August at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Diversity is a strength of the program, with SISE'ers representing a broad range of racial and ethnic identities, socio-economic backgrounds, academic professions and levels, sexual and gender identities, and institutional and national affiliations. They live together. They research together. They become a part of our extended "SISE family."

During weekdays, SISE'ers spend about eight hours of their day in high-level talks, visiting sites, and networking. During evenings and weekends, they work collaboratively on a research project and find time to explore the city of Chicago!

Applications for the 2022 Fellowship cycle will open in December 2021  Learn more
