  • Scholarship Description
    Headwaters Magazine, in collaboration with the University of Vermont Clean Energy Fund, is inviting undergraduate students at New England universities to participate in an essay contest on the theme “New England Clean Energy Campus.” This contest, which is open to undergraduate students in all fields of study, is an opportunity for the change-makers of the future to articulate what they think the clean energy campus of the future will look like and what universities can do to facilitate the clean energy transition. It will encourage students to look to the realistic future, while keeping in mind what is happening in the present. This journalistic style essay will have appeal for both professionals and the general public.

    Headwaters Magazine is hosting this contest with UVM’s Clean Energy Fund. Founded in 2015, Headwaters strives to provide informed student commentary on local, regional, and global environmental issues. We publish a print magazine every semester and post content continuously online at http://uvmheadwaters.org/ . The Clean Energy Fund was established to advance renewable energy infrastructure on campus, and foster clean energy research and academics.
