About the scholarships
Geothermal Rising is pleased to announce the availability of the 2021 Geothermal Rising Scholarship Awards.
To qualify for any of these awards a student must be a Geothermal Rising member (student memberships are only $20 per year). The selection of recipients will be based upon a variety of factors, including the individual’s academic record, student activities, geothermal industry experience, and career goals. The following awards are available:
Five (5) Marcelo Lippmann Graduate Scholarship Awards of $2500 – to be eligible for one of these awards, the candidate must be enrolled in a graduate-level program at an accredited academic institution at the time of the award (Fall 2021). If selected, each recipient is required to submit a paper on his/her research (or research progress) to be published in the Geothermal Rising Transactions and deliver results at the meeting as either a poster or oral presentation. If the recipient presents in the year of the award then the full $2500 is awarded at that time; if the recipient defers to present/publish the following year then $750 is withheld until the following year when the recipient presents.
Three (3) Geothermal Rising Undergraduate Scholarship Awards of $500 – to be eligible for one of these awards, the candidate must be a third or fourth-year undergraduate at an accredited academic institution at the time of the award (Fall 2021).
