WiRE Professional and Technical Development ScholarshipJuly 31, 2022 11:59 pm
[UPDATE 6/3/22: NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. PROGRAM AT CAPACITY] As a women’s business organization, WiRE is committed to supporting professional and technical development opportunities fir our members. We are honored to continue our Professional and Technical Development Scholarship.
[UPDATE: No longer accepting applications. Program has reached capacity as of June 3, 2022]
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Through July 31, 2022, WiRE will be providing members up to 50% financial support (up to $1,000) in the form of a reimbursement of 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!
