The scholarships are available to students that have outstanding energy leadership, knowledge, an interest in continuing their energy studies for the purpose of seeking a career in an energy-related field.
The applicants of the scholarship must exhibit strong leadership skills and must be respected by peers and demonstrated prior or current participation in energy activities. The applicants are also required to either live in an area where DP&L and Vectren are supplied. The scholarship program will be facilitated by the Ohio Energy Project, a non-profit energy education organization.
