The energy field is facing a shortage of 100,000 skilled tradespeople in the near future. Powering Up is dedicated to fortifying this workforce, recognizing the urgent need for skilled professionals to navigate the challenges of tomorrow's energy landscape.

This scholarship is for individuals interested in technical careers in the broad world of energy—from those who seek to support the maintenance of safe and clean fossil fuel based energy sources, to technicians for new renewable technologies.

Any high school student who plans to pursue a technical or two-year degree or current trade school student pursuing a career in the energy field may apply for this scholarship; underrepresented minorities are highly encouraged to apply. Veterans and those who are switching careers are also encouraged to apply.
