Four Fulton Engineering undergraduate students received scholarships from the IEEE Power and Energy Society in the inaugural round of the Scholarship Plus Initiative™. Carrie Culp, Abhishek Dharan, Anthony Pelot and Alban Shemsedini are among approximately 93 recipients chosen from 51 U.S. universities.
ASU had the second highest number of recipients in the nation.
The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative™ is a new program established to attract high quality engineering students to the power and energy field. The industry faces challenges of responding to enormous growth, replacing aging infrastructure and adapting to new green technologies—challenges compounded by a projected energy workforce shortage.
