UVIG Scholarship Program – Supporting Wind and Solar Power Education
One of the goals of the Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group (UVIG) is to further the education of students enrolled in accredited college or vocational schools in programs related to power engineering, wind or solar energy, or the maintenance of wind turbines or solar generation equipment. Towards this end, each year UVIG may award up to five scholarships. Up to three (3) $2,000 scholarships are granted to students enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited engineering school who are pursuing a career in power engineering with a focus or major on wind or solar generation,and up to two (2) $1,000 scholarships may be granted to students enrolled in an accredited wind or solar power plant technician program.
To be eligible for scholarship assistance, a student must be currently enrolled or accepted for enrollment at an accredited trade school or college in the United States or Canada in a field of study leading to a career related to utility power engineering or operation and maintenance of utility-scale wind or solar generation equipment. Applications from students in other countries will be considered if the student can list as a reference an employee at a UVIG member organization in that country.
