Undergraduate and Graduate students from all other institutions

We are pleased to announce that a limited number of support awards will be available for students attending PECI 2017. At this time, we do not know the number of students we can support, or what type of support will be available, however we encourage everyone who is interested to apply. While the full nature of support is not yet known, at the least, students receiving support will receive a reimbursement of their registration fees at PECI 2017.

Student applications will be reviewed in the order they are received and recipients of the student support award will be chosen by the PECI organizing committee based on the following criteria:

  1. The applicant must be an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in an accredited institution.
  2. The applicants will be considered based on merits, including previous activities and service to the power and energy community (digest reviewer, etc.).
  3. Applicants authoring or co-authoring a paper that was accepted for presentation will be prioritized.
  4. Based upon need (i.e., if no support is available from your institution).

Please write a short statement (max. 250 words) addressing abovementioned criteria and email it to Matt Feddersen ( or Cecilia Klauber ( by February 1st, 2017. Students receiving support will be announced on February 17th, 2017 via email.
