Jonathon from Lehigh University recently commented “The IEEE PES Scholarship has awarded me so many new experiences in the power and energy field and has enabled me to interact with many people who share my interests– both contemporaries and those with already established careers. Through the scholarship, I have had opportunities that would not have been possible without it, including my summer internship at G&W and my time at the PES general meeting this summer in Chicago. Both experiences furthered my interests in electrical engineering and reinforced my decision to work in this field when I graduate.”
