Bursary for female students

interested in working in energy
for female students and emerging professionals interested in working in the Ontario power sector

APPrO understands that people starting out in a new field sometime need a helping hand. The electricity sector is a heavily male dominated field, but that is changing, as it should. To help that progress along, and encourage women’s participation, we are offering a bursary for the full registration fees to a limited number of students and emerging professionals currently working in junior positions or students interested in potentially pursuing work in the energy sector.


The bursary will be offered to three qualifying female students or young professionals who would like to attend the conference but might find the registration fee a little beyond their means.


To qualify please send your name and contact details, along with background information on your work and interests in the power generation field, to <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>. Please put the phrase "Bursary Request" in the subject line of your message.
A number of terms and conditions apply, as outlined in the detailed explanations below.
