Women in Power Bursary
Bursary for Female Students or young professionals
interested in or working in the Ontario power sector
Bursary for women interested in working in energy
This bursary is provided by APPrO in partnership with WiRE (Women in Renewable Energy) for students and emerging professionals interested in working in the Ontario power sector
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 students or young professionals who would like to attend the conference.
Bursary Eligibility Criteria
• Available to any woman who is a currently enrolled as a college or university student, or has graduated in 2016 or later
• Interested in any sector of renewable energy, including academic, manufacturing, technical, consulting, engineering, finance, and others
