2014 ACES Recipients

In October, BluEarth announced two recipients of its 2014 Aboriginal Clean Energy Scholarship (ACES) which provides financial support of $3,000 per academic year and skills development opportunities for Canadian aboriginal students pursuing trades certification, diploma, degree and other programs from accredited post-secondary institutions.

The scholarship offers a unique opportunity for aboriginal students to gain work experience and learn from one of the most experienced renewable power generation teams in the country.
