Applications for the
2016 Linda Latham Scholarships Now Open
"I felt like I was truly part of a fantastic group of people wanting to make a real difference...one of the most amazing experiences of my graduate school experience."
-- 2014 Latham Scholar from UC Berkeley
DEADLINE: MARCH 18, 2016
ACEEE is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for Linda Latham Scholarships to be used for attendance at the 2016 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. Scholarships are sponsored by the Linda Latham Scholarship Fund which was established in memory of Linda Latham who served as ACEEE's Chief Operating Officer until her untimely death in September 2011. Linda believed that students bring talent and creativity to the field of energy efficiency especially if we provide a venue to inspire and educate them.
To be eligible, the applicant must be an undergraduate or graduate student in an accredited college or university whose course work is related to energy/energy efficiency, climate change, environmental science, or a related field of study, and who is considering a career in energy/energy efficiency.
For the 2016 Summer Study, Linda Latham Scholarships will be awarded to students at three different scholarship levels. Level 1 awardees will receive a full conference registration, housing and meals, and up to $500 of their transportation costs. Level II scholars will receive a full conference registration and housing and meals. Level III winners will receive a full registration to the conference. We have more Level III scholarships available than we do for Level II and more Level II scholarships than Level I; therefore, chances of selection will be highest at Level III and lowest at Level I. Find more information here.
Applicants are encouraged to complete the online application, or use the application form on our website and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be submitted with required attachments including a copy of the applicant's student ID and proof of student status.
No applications will be accepted after the submission deadline on March 18, 2016.
Scholarship winners will be notified by April 8, 2016.
