Now Accepting Applications for 2018 Linda Latham Scholarships

February 21 2018

Through March 23, ACEEE is accepting applications for the Linda Latham Scholarship to attend our 2018 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings in Pacific Grove, California from August 12–17. The scholarship was established in memory of Linda Latham who served as ACEEE’s Chief Operating Officer until her untimely death in September 2011. Linda, who helped found the US government’s ENERGY STAR® program, believed that students bring talent and creativity to the field of energy efficiency especially if we provide a venue to inspire and educate them.


Applicant must be an undergraduate or graduate student in an accredited college or university whose course work is related to energy, climate change, environmental science, or a related field of study, and who is considering a career in energy or energy efficiency. “Latham Scholars” will be exposed to new ideas and opportunities as they interact with efficiency experts from around the world. In turn, Summer Study attendees will be able to meet these exceptional students — a reciprocal opportunity for all!

For the 2018 Summer Study, students can apply for one of three levels of scholarships: Level III provides full conference registration; Level II adds housing and meals; and Level I also includes up to $500 in transportation costs. We have more Level III scholarships than Level II and more Level II scholarships than Level I; therefore, chances of selection are highest at Level III and lowest at Level I.

How To Apply 

Applicants must complete an online application. Applications must be submitted with required attachments including a copy of the applicant’s Student ID and proof of student status (unofficial transcript/enrollment for current semester). No applications will be accepted after the March 23, 2018 deadline. An ACEEE committee will review applications, select the winners, and begin notifying recipients on April 20, 2018.
