Sullivan Solar Power, a solar energy company headquartered in San Diego with offices in Irvine and Riverside, CA announced today a $2000 student scholarship to benefit high school and college students. In addition to submitting an essay, applicants are required to have at least one parent or grandparent who is an immigrant to the United States and plan to use their college education to help create a sustainable future.
"Sullivan Solar Power launched over 15 years ago to change the way we generate electricity and education has played a large role in our pathway to 100 percent clean energy," said Daniel Sullivan, president and founder of Sullivan Solar Power, and third-generation American with Irish heritage, "We love supporting students who are excited to make our world a brighter place for their generation and the next generation."
This will be the 2nd student scholarship awarded by the company since 2017 and is expected to be given out twice annually. Regardless of their field of study, students are asked to explain how they plan to use their education to further energy conservation goals and create a sustainable future.
"I was fortunate to win Sullivan Solar Power’s scholarship last year, which has helped me greatly in my quest for my bachelor’s degree," said previous winner, "I appreciate that they have a sustainability scholarship to give back to students like me looking to make a positive impact on society."
