In honor of Steve Hansen
Since 2006, the MREA has provided scholarships to support students pursuing careers in clean energy. In honor of Steve Hansen, a brilliant educator who taught thousands of students in Wisconsin about the importance of renewable energy and environmental sustainability, the Clean Energy Scholarship Fund was established to help the next generation carry on his important work. It is designed to assist students who are pursuing degrees and/or relevant credentials in renewable energy, energy efficiency, or clean technology.
Scholarships are awarded to students who reside in the Midwest (WI, MN, MI, IA, IL, IN, OH, MO). Students should possess a clear goal of desiring to make her or his community, environment, or world a better and more sustainable place to live. Students should be able to show prior interest and/or education in the field. Criteria for awarding scholarships are based on student motivation, enthusiasm, and commitment. GPA and scholarship will be considered, but are not the deciding factor. High school students, college students, and non-traditional students are invited to apply. Scholarships are typically set at $500.
To apply for the scholarship, please fill out our Scholarship Application Form. Applications are due to the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) by April 15 of each year.
