The Institute for Energy Studies is supported using public funds from the State of Washington, philanthropic giving from our Industry Partners, as well as generous gifts from individuals. Private support allows the Institute to directly support student learning through scholarships, travel to conferences, and provides research opportunities among other things. It also allows innovation in designing new classes, funds the purchasing of laboratory equipment, and connects Institute to the broader energy community by supporting symposia and visiting scholars.
