The National Hydropower Association is accepting applications for a newly created Past Presidents’ Legacy Scholarship, established to attract talented students to careers in the hydropower industry.
NHA said the association plans to award one $2,000 scholarship in 2008, the program’s first year. The scholarship will be awarded at NHA’s 2008 annual conference, April 13-16, in Washington. (HNN 12/14/07)
Only the first 25 people who submit applications postmarked by March 1 are eligible for the scholarship. Applicants either must be: juniors, seniors, or graduate students with a minimum cumulative 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent; or students with an equivalent GPA at an accredited vocational trade school or program. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal residents.
The Past Presidents’ Legacy Scholarship is funded by contributions from NHA, the Hydro Research Foundation, previous NHA presidents, and other donors as a legacy to past presidential service to the association.
