Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) is accepting applications for fellowships to women college students, recent graduates, or women changing careers into the wind energy field to attend the annual American Wind Energy Association WINDPOWER conference where there will be tens of thousands of wind energy professionals in attendance. The fellowship honors wind industry pioneer Rudd Mayer.
The Rudd Mayer Memorial Fellowships support women to participate in WINDPOWER, attending seminars on current wind energy issues, viewing state-of-the-art technology, meeting women and men in the renewable energy field, and connecting with employers about potential internships or permanent positions.
WINDPOWER 2014 will be held from May 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV. The Fellowship covers the cost of travel to and from the WINDPOWER conference site, conference registration (and included meals), and lodging. Fellows will be announced on stage at the 10th annual WoWE luncheon.
The Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. Rudd Mayer Fellows are selected by the WoWE Board of Directors, based on:
- a demonstrated interest in renewable energy
- academic achievement
- work and volunteer experience
- potential for future contributions to the U.S. renewable energy community
- and financial need.
