The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has launched its AWEA Educational Scholarship Fund, with the support of Suzlon Wind Energy Corp. and Vestas Americas.

This new scholarship program was created to provide complimentary conference registration for individuals interested in enhancing their knowledge of the wind industry, including full-time students and faculty and staff of K-12 institutions, among others. According to AWEA, the first scholarships will be offered for the Windpower 2007 Conference & Exhibition from June 3-6 in Los Angeles. Applications are due to AWEA by April 28.

In addition, AWEA is hosting its annual Windpower Golf Open, which will benefit the scholarship fund. The pre-conference event will be held on June 3 at the Coyote Hills Golf Club in Los Angeles.
