Calling college students! Submissions for the Everlight Solar Clean Energy Scholarship will open January 2023. We will award undergraduate students from select universities with $5000.
Each year, we choose two students from each of our school partners. First, these students are picked based on their commitment to safe and clean energy and living. Then, to pick the lucky winner, these students compete in a basketball shoot out. The winner then takes home $5000 to fund their studies.
If you attend any of the schools below, you’re eligible!
- Utah State University
- University of Minnesota
- Creighton University
- University of Wisconsin
Celebrating past Clean Energy Scholarship winners
Some of our past winners include Haley, a Junior at the University of Wisconsin studying Economics and Environmental Studies. Haley took home $5000 in 2022. She proved her commitment to clean living through her plant-based diet. Additionally, she supports local companies, and uses social media to increase environmental awareness.
Another winner from last year is Sean. Sean is a second-year Chemical Engineering student at University of Minnesota. He is currently helping to design biodegradable plastics. In fact, these will reduce the long-lasting affects that normal plastic objects have on our planet. Sean plans to use the scholarship funds to further his work on this project.
Last year we also awarded Luke, an Engineering major at Creighton University. Luke currently works for the Creighton Office of Sustainability Programs. Indeed, Luke uses his position to organize events that increase awareness of renewable lifestyles. He has helped to start several programs. These programs include: zero-waste sporting events, on-campus composting, and inter-residential hall competitions.
Lastly, our Utah State University 2022 winner is Nick. He is a Mechanical Engineering major who commits himself to clean living. He plans to make and stick to changes both big and small, and make a lasting impact on the health of our planet.
