Boston-based wind developer First Wind says that applications are available for its annual scholarship program.

As part of the 2013 program, as many as 15 one-time awards will be granted to students within host communities in Hawaii, Maine, New York, Utah, Vermont, Washington and the company's home state of Massachusetts. Qualified students enrolling in full-time degree programs focused on sciences or technology are invited to apply.

Recipients will be awarded a one-time $3,000 scholarship for one year. The company also awards one scholarship of $5,000, renewable for up to four years, to the year’s single most qualified applicant.

In order to be eligible, students need a GPA of at least 2.75 and must plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study with a major in the sciences and/or engineering or technology.

Applications are due by Feb. 15, 2013, and will be evaluated on a number of factors, including academic performance, work experience, school and community activities and a 300-word essay. The recipients will be announced in May 2013.
