Calgary, Alberta – June 2, 2015 – BluEarth Renewables Inc. (BluEarth) is pleased to announce the 2015 launch of its Aboriginal Clean Energy Scholarship (ACES). The ACES is intended to help emerging Aboriginal leaders develop skills and knowledge in the clean energy sector.
“BluEarth is committed to building mutually-beneficial relationships with Canada’s Aboriginal communities,” said Kent Brown, President & CEO of BluEarth. “We are excited to build off of the success of last year’s program to continue to support post-secondary education of young Aboriginal leaders interested in renewable energy.”
The ACES offers each successful candidate financial support of up to $3,000 per academic year, as well as the opportunity for valuable work experience in developing, building and operating clean power facilities in Canada.
Scholarship recipients will be offered a paid internship with BluEarth upon completion of their academic year. Recipients will also be paired with a BluEarth employee who will serve as a learning partner.
The ACES is available to Canadian Aboriginal students pursuing trades certification, diploma, degree and other programs from accredited post-secondary institutions.
Applicants will be evaluated based on academic merit and community involvement, and those pursuing studies transferable to the clean energy sector are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply is Sept. 15, 2015.
