2011 ACEEE scholarship winner Ben DeitchmanThe American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is taking scholarship applications for its 2013 summer study in energy efficiency for industry, to be held July 23-26 in Niagara Falls, NY. The application deadline is March 22, 2013.

Scholarships are funded by the Linda Latham Scholarship fund, 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.

"Latham Scholars" will be exposed to new ideas and opportunities as they interact with energy efficiency experts from around the world. In turn, Summer Study attendees will be able to meet these exceptional students- a reciprocal opportunity for all!

For the 2013 Summer Study, the Linda Latham Scholarship fund will award scholarships to students at three different scholarship levels. ACEEE has more Level III scholarships available than they have for Level II, and more Level II scholarships than for Level I. Chances of selection will be highest at Level III and lowest at Level I.

Level I scholars will receive full conference registration, housing and meals, and up to $500 for travel reimbursement.
Level II scholars will receive full conference registration and housing and meals.
Level III scholars will receive full registration to the conference.

Applications must be submitted with required documents including a copy of the applicant's Student ID and proof of student status (unofficial transcript/enrollment for current semester) to with your name as the subject. No applications will be accepted after the March 22, 2013 deadline. Applications will be reviewed and chosen by a committee of ACEEE staff.

Scholarship winners will be notified during the week of April 17, 2013.
