Cypress Creek Renewables Awards 35 Students with Scholarship

Cypress Creek Renewables is pleased to announce that 35 students from across the country were selected to receive its Energizing Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship award this year. 

Each student was awarded a $1,000, one-time scholarship to use for tuition, housing, or books and materials needed for their program of study. As part of the application process, the students were asked to submit a short video responding to the question “How does renewable energy affect your future?” 

“We were delighted to read the applications and watch the creative videos submitted by the talented high school seniors that were chosen as this year’s Energizing Tomorrow’s Leaders awardees,” said Sarah Slusser, CEO of Cypress Creek. “It’s exciting to think about what these ambitious students will accomplish in the future, and we wish them success.” 

The Energizing Tomorrow’s Leaders scholarship program was created by Cypress Creek Renewables to positively impact young people in the communities where it develops and operates renewable energy projects. It’s also intended to encourage students to consider careers in renewable energy or other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields. This year the 35 winners were chosen from schools in seven different counties and states: Klickitat County, Wash., Venango County, Pa., Livingston County, Ill., Galveston County, Texas, Elbert County, Colo., Suffolk County, N.Y., and Davidson County, N.C.
