About the Affiliate Program
Irving Institute Affiliates are the cornerstone of the Institute community.
Irving Institute Faculty Affiliates: Faculty affiliates are foundational members of Irving Institute and are composed of faculty with a track-record of transformative and interdisciplinary energy and society work. They will work together with Irving Institute staff form the core of the Irving Institute community. Additionally, they will use their scholarship, teaching and engagement to grapple with and explore real-world energy and society issues and collaborate with partners outside the college to explore important energy and society issues. Irving Institute Faculty Affiliates can be Dartmouth College tenured/tenure-track, research, and teaching faculty. Irving Institute provides faculty affiliates an opportunity to apply for competitive funds available to support research for individuals, pilot projects, or larger research groups, and/or for energy and society related curricular and co-curricular development and sabbaticals. Irving Institute Faculty Affiliate appointments are for three years with a renewable term. Affiliate applications are due June 1 of every year and will be evaluated by an interdisciplinary committee composed of internal and external energy and society experts.
Irving Institute Associate Affiliates: Associates are graduate students, post-docs, junior researchers and staff who are developing skills in interdisciplinary and engaged scholarship on energy and society issues.

Irving Institute training activities will support future careers in energy and society related fields, scholarship and broader engagement on energy related issues. The associates are chosen based on their promise to become internationally recognized for their energy and society research and those most likely to affect transformative energy and society outcomes.
