"Zach is an outstanding student, and very deserving of this award," said Professor Dan Trudnowski, head of the Electrical Engineering Department at Montana Tech. "The Power & Energy Society represents a global group of electrical engineers who work around-the-clock to maintain a safe and reliable supply of electricity. They are the people who 'keep the lights on', and we look forward to seeing Zach and his classmates join their ranks."  

Approximately 210 students from across the USA & Canada will be recognized as PES Scholarship Plus recipients.

The scholarship recognizes undergraduate students who have declared a major in electrical engineering, are high achievers with strong GPAs with distinctive extracurricular commitments and are committed to exploring the power and energy field. Each scholarship recipient receives $2,000 USD and can receive funding for up to 3 years.
