Now in its fourth year, the NEC Scholarship Program, sponsored by the Renewable Fuels Foundation and the RFA, seeks to attract students of higher learning who wish to pursue a career related to ethanol. By offering scholarships that waive the conference registration fee, this program provides eligible students with opportunities to hear from and meet with top industry leaders, policy makers and academic and technical experts. The aim of this program is to reach aspiring ethanol advocates and open new doors and present new perspectives on biofuels’ place in our world today and beyond.

A total of six (6) scholarships will be provided to students in higher education to attend the 2013 NEC.  Scholarships will cover the cost of the conference registration fee—a $775 value—making the conference free to the winners.  Recipients will be responsible for all other costs associated with travel to and from the conference, including airfare, ground transportation, hotel and meals.  Additional financial assistance to offset travel expenses may be available at the discretion of the RFF/RFA.  Winners will be notified by e-mail with further information on how to claim their scholarship shortly after the deadline.
