Four types of scholarships are offered — educational scholarships, student research grants, student internships, and technical design projects.
As a DEED member, you may apply for a student internship, which funds an intern to carry out an energy research project at your utility. If approved, you must recruit a student for the internship. Your utility may also sponsor a student who has applied directly to DEED and wins a scholarship.
Students — high school seniors through graduate students — accepted or enrolled full-time in technical/trade schools or accredited colleges and universities are eligible to apply for all scholarships.
There are two application deadlines each year: February 15 and October 15. The online application is open at least two months before each deadline.
