GRC announces availability of $14,000 in student geothermal scholarships
Geothermal Resources Council announces scholarships totalling $14,000 in educational awards to be given to eight students, undergraduate and graduate, in the global geothermal energy community.
The U.S.-based Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) has announced the availability of the 2020 GRC Scholarship Awards. To qualify for any of these awards a student must be a GRC member (student memberships are only $20 per year). Selection of recipients will be based upon a variety of factors, including the individual’s academic record, student activities, geothermal industry experience, and career goals.
The following awards are available:
- Five (5) Marcelo Lippmann Graduate Scholarship Awards of $2,500 – to be eligible for one of these awards, the candidate must be enrolled in a graduate-level program at an accredited academic institution at the time of the award (Fall 2020). If selected, each recipient is required to submit a paper on his/her research (or research progress) to be published in the GRC Transactions and deliver results at the meeting as either a poster or oral presentation. If the recipient presents in the year of the award then the full $2500 is awarded at that time; if the recipient defers to present/publish the following year then $750 is withheld until the following year when the recipient presents.
- Three (3) GRC Undergraduate Scholarship Awards of $500 – to be eligible for one of these awards, the candidate must be a third or fourth year undergraduate at an accredited academic institution at the time of the award (Fall 2020).
Applications must be received by May 15, 2020 to be considered.
