Student Fellowship for Solar Canada Conference 2014

Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE) is pleased to award three Student Fellowships to women college or university students to attend the Canadian Solar Industries Association’s (CanSIA) Solar Canada: Annual Conference and Exhibition. This Fellowship supports women to attend conference sessions and seminars on current solar energy issues, view state-of-the-art technology at the exhibition, meet women and men in the renewable energy sector, and connect with employers about potential internships or permanent positions.

CanSIA’s Solar Canada: Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held December 8-9th, 2014 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in Toronto, ON. More than 3,000 attendees and 200 exhibitors are expected to attend.  

With the support of CanSIA, the Fellowship covers registration for the conference (and included meals). Additional expenses are not covered and are the responsibility of the recipient. The Fellowships are awarded based on demonstrated interest in renewable energy development, academic achievement, work experience and potential for future contributions to the renewable energy community.
