Faraday Undergraduate Summer Experience (FUSE) programme

In the summer of 2021, the Faraday Institution will provide around 50 undergraduate students with the opportunity to take part in a paid “virtual” internship associated with one of our partner universities of up to eight weeks duration.

Goals of the internships are:

  • To inspire young people to pursue careers in the fields of battery technology and energy storage
  • To diversify the pool of talent
  • To increase participants’ knowledge, skills and aspirations
  • Give contact with positive role models

Participating universities construct project research topics that connect to the Faraday Institution research projects and select their intern on a competitive basis from a diverse pool of applicants. Working alongside a supervisor, students have access to other research scientists. Interns are welcome to join the weekly Faraday Masterclass webinars and we will arrange video calls with our Faraday PhD researchers. At the end of the summer, and with the assistance of their supervisor, each intern prepares a poster covering their research. Students may be invited to present their research poster at a session at a Faraday Institution conference in November 2021.


Applicants must:

  • Be registered full-time undergraduate student from a UK university.
  • Undertake the internship within the years of their undergraduate study (i.e., not in final year).


Application processes vary by university. 


Will be announced in March 2021. Please return to this page then for details.
