Apply by August 1 for $1,000 scholarships
In an effort to further a vision of sustainable, green and renewable energy, Kurz Industrial Solutions, the Wisconsin-based service and maintenance operation, embarked on the journey of wind energy just eight years ago. Now, in 2022, the company is awarding (4) $1,000 scholarships to four candidates willing to propel the growth of wind in the states for generations to come.
The company encourages applicants if: "You are passionate and invested in wind energy. You believe in the importance of renewable energy for our present and our future. You’ve decided to make the commitment to innovation, excellence, and technological advancement. Whether you’re climbing wind turbines or developing better software monitoring systems for renewable resources, we want you to have every possible opportunity to further your education and become a leader in the energy evolution. The recipients of this scholarship will have the utmost expectations of pushing their peers, professors, and programs to continuously improve and accelerate the advancements in wind."
Scholarship guidelines, as detailed by Kurz, are as follows:
"Our ideal candidate will have enthusiasm, strong leadership skills, integrity, and a demonstrated commitment of growing renewable energy in their communities. High school students, college students, and non-traditional students from anywhere within the U.S. that have been accepted or enrolled in an accredited university are free to apply. We want you to be rewarded for the tremendous work you’re willing to invest in wind and renewable energy."
