Donate to support renewable energy

The scholarship gave me confidence and encouragement to continue pushing forward in graduate school. It reminded me of the importance of my work in developing renewable energy technologies and provided me with more clarity about my goals moving forward.

- Carolyn Virca, 2016 winner

Emerging renewable energy technologies, such as biomass, geothermal, wind, wave, and solar, show great potential for application worldwide. By financially encouraging accomplished students to apply their work towards fully realizing the benefits of these solutions, we can combat the increasing risks of climate change.

Please consider giving at any level. We are well-equipped to solicit and evaluate scholarship applications; however, we have limited means and need others to provide the money for most of the scholarships we give. Our goal is to increase our endowment so that we can give several scholarships a year from our own resources. 

For an annual gift of $2,000, we will create a scholarship in your name for targeted populations, including the winner’s geographic location, demographics, level, or studies in a specific aspect of renewable energy.
