firstwindscholarsA wind power developer is offering high school seniors with an interest in energy, the environment, or science, the opportunity for college scholarships, as long as they live in a community where one of their wind projects is operational or in the works:

“The First Wind Scholars program offers one-time, $3,000 college scholarships to high school seniors in communities where the company has a project in operation, construction or in an advanced stage of development. Students must display strong potential for a successful post-secondary experience, as well as interest in pursuing studies focused on the environment, energy or the sciences. One $5,000 scholarship, renewable for four years, is awarded to a stand-out applicant from the competitive pool.” – First Wind
