Future Power and Energy Leaders

The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative supports the most promising future engineers in power and energy. Recipients are high-achieving undergraduate students in electrical engineering programs who have committed to exploring the power and energy engineering field through both coursework and career experiences. PES regional volunteer leaders select recipients following the application submission period ending in June of each year. Within a few years, these promising students will graduate with the knowledge and career experience necessary to begin making an impact across the power and energy industry.
