Know a student clean energy leader? There’s a scholarship for that.

The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is committed to providing opportunities for students to become leaders in building a sustainable future powered by clean energy. The MREA Clean Energy Leadership Award is designed to assist students who are pursuing degrees and/or relevant credentials in renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainability, or clean technology.

We touched base with MREA Executive Director Nick Hylla to learn more.
