Alliant Energy seeks applications for their 2023 Innovation Scholarships. Up to 25 students will receive $1,000 scholarships to help reach their academic goals.
Applicants for the annual scholarships are asked to write an essay that identifies a problem in their community and present their own innovative solution using science, technology, engineering and/or math. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on essay content, participation in leadership roles, volunteer work and community service, activities and grade-point average.
Applicants must be enrolled in their first full-time program at an undergraduate school. They also must be less than 25 years old and either a dependent of a current Alliant Energy customer or a customer themselves.
Students can submit applications online at Alliant Energy Innovation Scholarship Program (ScholarsApply.org). The application deadline is February 15, 2023.
In addition to Innovation Scholarships, several scholarship opportunities are available through Alliant Energy’s partner schools and aim to empower students to pursue careers in the energy industry. In 2022, 101 students received scholarships from Alliant Energy. These contributions totaled more than $119,000 to offset tuition costs and student loans.
