PES Scholarship Plus Golf Outing
5 May 2012 - Shingle Creek Golf Course, Orlando, FL


Registrations are now being taken for the 1st IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Program Golf Outing scheduled for May 5, 2012 at Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.   The golf outing is being sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society and is being held prior to the 2012 IEEE PES Transmission and Distribution Conference and Exposition.   If you participate in this golf outing, you will enjoy a great day of camaraderie and friendly competition between golfing friends and colleagues who will tee it up all for the benefit of the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative and the Next Generation of Power and Energy Engineers.

The purpose of the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative is to help address the crucial challenge facing the field of power and energy the impending shortage of power engineers needed to sustain and transform electric energy systems that the United States so heavily relies upon. Nearly one-half of all existing power engineers are eligible to retire and are likely to leave the workforce within the next five years.   In the first year of the program, IEEE awarded 93 PES Scholarships to students from 51 universities (including 4 from the University of Central Florida) across the United States, totaling nearly $200,000 in scholarship dollars. With 2012 marking the second year of the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative, the goal is to allocate 400+ scholarships to eligible students.  

The cost to participate in the golf outing is $125 per person*.    There are a limited number of seats available for this golf outing that will offer all competitors the opportunity to win individual and team prizes. Early registration is encouraged as seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

The day's outing begins at 8:00 a.m. with a shotgun start followed by luncheon and the awards presentations. Visit the registration page and make your reservation NOW.
