IEEE Scholarships

Power and energy engineers work with some of today's most exciting technologies, developing solutions to problems that affect our lives and lifestyles. The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers. Our undergraduate engineering scholarships aim to accomplish this goal by attracting highly qualified engineering students to the field. These students are the very individuals who will one day develop new green technologies, build the smart grid and change the way we generate and utilize power.

Siemens Energy Scholars Award

Siemens is a global powerhouse focusing on the areas of electrification, automation, and digitalization. One of the world's largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens is a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission as well as medical diagnosis. In infrastructure and industry solutions, the company plays a pioneering role. The purpose of the Fund is to help The William States Lee College of Engineering attract and retain top undergraduate students with an end-goal of increasing the pipeline of top engineering talent for employment in the energy sector. The Fund will provide non-renewable merit-based awards to rising junior and senior-level students enrolled in an energy-engineering progran1 curriculum or degree program. Scholarships awards shall start after the sophomore year for students who best meet the donor criteria.

SOS NERC Certification Training Scholarship

SOS has partnered with EPIC to offer NERC Certification Training scholarships to UNC Charlotte College of Engineering students. NERC-certified system operators are in high demand with electric utilities. These system operators manage the flow of energy across the transmission system and ensure reliability – helping to keep the lights on. In support of NERC’s mission, the System Operator Certification Program promotes reliability of the North American bulk power system by ensuring that employers have a workforce of system operators that meet minimum qualifications. 

William H. Grigg Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship was established in honor of William H. Grigg to provide financial support while attracting and retaining top undergraduate students with an end-goal of increasing the pipeline of top engineering talent for employment in the energy sector.
