Cypress Creek Renewables is proud to launch the Energizing Tomorrow's Leaders Scholarship program! Scholarships are being granted to students in seven counties in seven states across the USA. We are committed to making an impact in the communities in which we develop and operate our solar projects, and new counties will be announced each year. Awardees of the scholarship program will each receive a $1,000, one-year, non-renewable scholarship to use for tuition, housing, or books/materials needed for their program of study. Our goal is to help young people be successful and learn more about exciting opportunities in the growing field of solar and renewable energy and STEM-related fields.
Scholarship recipients must be graduating high school seniors who attend school within the boundaries of one of the following counties: Klickitat County, WA; Venango County, PA; Livingston County, IL; Galveston County, TX; Elbert County, CO; Suffolk County, NY; or Davidson County, NC. Scholarships will be granted to students pursuing 4-year, 2-year, or certificate programs at an accredited community college or university. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate an interest in a career in the renewable energy industry or a STEM-related field but all eligible students are welcome to apply. Proof of enrollment will be required prior to fund dispersal, and scholarships will be paid directly to the college or university.
