Shine On Scholarship - SolarCity & GivePower Foundation (Nepal)

Status: Applications are open. 


 

Program:

Kathmandu, Nepal - Microgrids for Rural Development - January 5-14, 2020


About

We are honored to announce the Shine On Scholarship in memory of Kate Slattery, a very bright and influential woman in STEM. As a mechanical engineer and photovoltaic designer for SolarCity, Kate challenged herself and others to work toward a global mission of renewable energy and sustainability.

 

In her desire to share the wonder of engineering with children, Kate wrote Fly with Maya, a storybook about a curious young girl who travels the world by way of a hot air balloon, learning from engineers throughout her journey. Kate hoped that Maya’s adventure would inspire girls in particular to pursue engineering careers and follow their dreams even when faced with challenging obstacles.

 

On behalf of the Shine On donors and GivePower, The GREEN Program is excited and humbled to offer scholarships of $2000.00 each for two women in STEM fields to join us in Nepal for our Microgrid Systems For Rural Development program, December 12-21, 2019.
