Once again this year, PERC is pleased to offer another value-added benefit of being a PERC Member School. Any student or faculty, or staff member at a PERC Member School, can receive a PERC-Member-only scholarship to EnergyPath 2012, valued at $1500 each. Take a group of students and staff, go with a colleague or go alone. It’s a fascinating experience.
50 PERC Member-School-only scholarships, valued at $1500 each
"Going to the SEF Energy Path bootcamps and conference with ten students was a tremendous experience for all involved and a financial no-brainer. We each received a week-long experience valued at $1500 apiece thanks to our PERC membership. The educational benefit and the tremendous value of the SEF scholarships was enough alone to justify our PERC membership dues to my provost."
