WAEE awarded $7,050 in scholarships on February 26, 2014, at the monthly meeting held at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee University Services and Research Building. The 2014 group of recipients is truly impressive with extensive energy-related work experiences, career interests, and volunteer efforts. The event provided the recipients an opportunity to meet other professionals working in energy careers and to see the wide variety of careers available to them. The primary goal, of course, is to support students pursuing engineering, business and technical careers with emphasis on energy efficiency, energy management, energy conservation, renewable energy or other energy related fields.
In 2014, the committee had great quantity and quality of applicants; 46 total applicants from five institutions. Each year, support for the WAEE scholarship program has grown. The program began with humble roots in 2009-2010 awarding $2,500. Thanks to corporate sponsorship and membership support, awards have grown each year and in 2014 provided a total of 7 awards for $7,050.
