The Rockefeller Center Senior Honors Thesis Grants program provides funding of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences.

As an Environmental Studies major and Economics minor, Jordan Swett '19 is fascinated by the interplay between developing economies and environmental improvement, particularly the ways in which humans can improve their own livelihoods and the environment through sustainable development.

Jordan is currently working with the Tuck School of Business Revers Center for Energy, researching U.S. wind energy policies, regulations, and markets to advise a wind energy startup company in commercializing their product.

For a portion of this summer and next winter break, Jordan will be traveling to South Africa to complete a senior honors thesis, during which he will be assessing the viability of installing and managing largescale renewable energy systems in rural communities that lack energy access. He is always excited to learn more about opportunities for collaboration within the economic, environmental studies, and energy spaces.
