The goal of Franklin Energy is to help utility customers manage their energy usage and meet energy goals. We make strides to reach this goal every day through implementing new programs and promoting energy-efficient behavior. But why stop there? For the fourth year in a row, we are going a step further in supporting future generations by offering our annual Energy Efficiency Experts of Tomorrow Scholarship.
As our industry grows and continues to thrive, the demand for energy experts is ever-increasing. We applaud those individuals pursuing a career in energy efficiency, as their desire to understand the technical and behavioral aspects of the industry is rare. We are proud to support the up-and-coming generation of efficiency experts, and we welcome the changes and new ideas they will bring to the industry.
The scholarship is open to all juniors and seniors at an accredited college or university who are enrolled in full-time study with a declared major of either environmental science or engineering. Applications are accepted from November 16, 2017 to February 1, 2018. Four $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to students selected by a non-biased third party panel. Future energy efficiency experts can find more details and apply for our scholarship below.
