Early Career and Underrepresented Institutions Award

ASME's Solar Energy Division and Advanced Energy Systems Division are pleased to announce a new award designed to support and broaden participation in the Energy Sustainability Conference.

All applicants should wait to register until hearing about awards. Awardees will be given a code that will apply the discount at the time of registration.

This award does not count towards meeting the registration requirement for final paper submission of the event. Final papers and one paid registration at the full author rate of one author of the presentation is still due April 17th.

The Early Career and Underrepresented Institutions Award is designed to support scholars who may have more barriers to attendance than others. It is open to scholars in the first five to eight years after receiving their final degrees and scholars from underrepresented institutions.

For the Energy Sustainability conference, underrepresented institutions include predominantly undergraduate institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Native American-Serving Institutions, and Institutions in the Global South. Awardees will receive a conference registration discount of $375 (equivalent to 50% of the member registration fee).

To apply, please complete this short application form, linked below. Scholars with demonstrated financial need will be given first priority when selecting award recipients. We anticipate granting up to 16 of these awards.

Submission Deadline: May 5, 2023
