There are two options for funding support:

1. The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy

The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy supports qualified undergraduate and graduate students pursuing professional and academic research opportunities related to energy policy through competitive grant funding. Students are encouraged to apply to the Kleinman Center as either individuals or as a team. Support may be used to cover research expenses, team project costs, conference registration or travel, and other professional development activities. A brief description of the request and an itemized budget are required. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis during both the academic year and the summer months. Please allow the review committee ten business days to consider all applications. Questions may be e-mailed to Kleinman Center Deputy Director, Cory Colijn, at

Application and deadline for 2019 TBA.

2. The Penn Program in Environmental Humanities Travel Fellowship of the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures for Freshmen and Sophomores

Penn undergraduates who currently receive financial aid are eligible to apply for the PPEH Travel Fellowship to help fund their participation in the Berlin and Rotterdam program. Recipients are selected based on their academic standing, financial need and demonstrated motivation for participating in the Berlin and Rotterdam program.

  • The award amounts to $4,500 and may be applied toward program fees, tuition and/or travel expenses
  • Recipients are asked to write two short blog posts about their summer experience: the first, written during their trip abroad, including photographs and details of both Rotterdam and Berlin; the second, written upon their return, reflecting upon the coursework in the program
  • Fellowship recipients who withdraw from the program forfeit the award. If the program is canceled, the student may not apply the award to any other coursework or program.


The PPEH Travel Fellowship is available to Penn undergraduates who:

  • Receive need-based financial aid during the 2018-2019 academic year
  • Have been admitted, or are in the process of applying to the 2019 Berlin and Rotterdam Penn Summer Abroad program
    • Admission to the Berlin and Rotterdam program is required before the fellowship awards are announced; however, students may apply for the PPEH Travel Fellowship before receiving their admission decision

Application deadline: February 16, 2019
