Solar Energy Scholarships
Solar Energy International (SEI) and BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC (BayWa r.e.) today announced they have selected the first five recipients of solar training scholarships from the BayWa r.e. Scholarship Fund.
The $10,000 scholarship fund was created earlier this year to contribute 100% of SEI tuition fees for nine hand-selected future solar professionals. The program focuses on reaching candidates who have become unemployed or underemployed during the coronavirus pandemic as well as growing a diverse, skilled workforce to deploy renewable energy safely worldwide.
BayWa r.e. Scholarship Fund awardees receive technical and safety training via SEI’s online or in-person classes and labs, to help each graduate improve their chances of landing a solar job while also increasing the diversity of the solar workforce.
Applications are still open for the final four scholarships, which will be awarded later this year.
