WiRE Professional and Technical Development Scholarship
See here for pre-approved bundles, pricing, and coaching.
As a women’s business organization, WiRE is committed to providing support for women’s participation in professional and technical development opportunities. We are honored to announce the re-launch of the Professional and Technical Development Scholarship courtesy of funding from the Frost Family Foundation to support WiRE member’s professional development and to empower them in the asking and negotiating for financial support from their employers for professional development opportunities.
Starting in December 17, 2019, WiRE will be providing members up to 50% financial support (up to $1,000) in the form of a grant reimbursing professional/technical development costs (includes related travel and lodging) on a rolling basis until funds are fully disbursed. If a desired professional or technical development opportunity is not readily available by a third party, applicant may design her own training experience.
This funding serves three main purposes:
- Empowers WiRE members by providing them access to professional training that they would not otherwise have;
- Allows WiRE members to demonstrate their ability to leverage outside funds when requesting support from their own employers or institutions; and
- Directly addresses the out of pocket costs associated with WiRE members’ efforts to advance to the next level of their careers.
For any questions on the Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE) Professional and Technical Training Scholarship, please contact us at wire [at] hawaiiwire [dot] org. Recipients may be asked to participate in a WiRE panel, survey or discussion groups to share about their experience with this program.
We look forward to receiving your application!
