"I have faith these students will make the most of this opportunity and work hard to help make the world a more open, more sustainable and more responsible place."
Global energy leader, Iberdrola S.A., established the scholarship program to support graduate studies in the broad field of energy, with a special focus on renewable energy development, environmental protection, climate change and energy efficiency. Each grant covers the full cost of enrollment plus a stipend.
"To get fully funded to do what I love, pursuing green, sustainable technologies and getting my master's degree in the United States, is a dream come true for me," said Noelia Hurtado Lopez-Plaza. "Thank you Iberdrola for your faith and support."
"This scholarship has allowed me to join a very active Smart Grid research group at the University of Maine," said Luis Badesa. "I am honored to get this recognition and immensely grateful to Iberdrola for giving me such an opportunity."
