Be recognized for your passion for efficiency. Apply for an exciting opportunity as a Linda Latham Scholar.

Deadline: March 19, 2021

The application deadline is quickly approaching for ACEEE’s Linda Latham Scholarship. Here is your chance to attend our dynamic 2021 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry.

The scholarship was established to honor Linda Latham, who served as ACEEE’s chief operating officer until her untimely death in September 2011. Linda, co-founder of the U.S. government’s ENERGY STAR® program, believed students bring talent and creativity to the field of energy efficiency especially if we provide a venue to inspire and educate them.

Eligible applicants must be current full-time undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours at an accredited college or university. They also need to be studying energy, climate change, or environmental science, and considering a career in energy or energy efficiency. “Latham Scholars” will be exposed to new ideas and opportunities as they interact with efficiency experts from around the world. In turn, Summer Study attendees will be able to network and mentor these exceptional students — a win-win for all!

How To Apply

Complete the online application and submit copies of the required documents outlined in the application to the Scholarship team. No applications will be accepted after the March 19 deadline. An ACEEE committee will review applications, select the winners, and notify recipients by the end of April.

“As a young professional who has just entered the field of energy, I am deeply grateful to the Linda Latham scholarship fund for providing me the opportunity to network with and learn from both seasoned energy champions and other emerging leaders.”
