Internship opportunities for spring 2024 are now open.

Scroll down to see how you can join the SolarSPELL team, enjoy mentorship from our incredible interdisciplinary staff, and have a real-world impact with your work.

The SolarSPELL initiative is proud to have students on our team in every step of our projects, from software and hardware design to impact evaluation to building the libraries themselves through content curation. Students have joined our team as research assistants, interns, fellows, volunteers, and through project-based courses. Please see the postings below for our latest opportunities and information on how to apply or enroll. If you are passionate about this initiative but do not see an opportunity below that matches your interests, please email our student engagement coordinator Cassie Barrett at [email protected] with how you would like to be involved!
