The Charles Kirkland Scholarship has been designed by entrepreneur Charles Kirkland, who was a passionate advocate for the power of education and innovation.

The winner for the scholarship will be announced November 15, 2023.

The selection committee will evaluate the winner of the award based on our essay contest which answers the question: “Describe an industry related to green energy that needs significant improvement and propose a new business idea that could make a positive impact in that industry.” The winner of the essay contest will be determined by the selection committee, who will assess all submissions using various criteria. These include academic excellence (reflected by GPA), participation in extracurricular activities related to entrepreneurship (such as competitions or programs), leadership skills (such as involvement in student organizations), demonstrated financial need (with possible documentation required), quality of the essays/personal statements submitted, quality of the letters of recommendation, strength of the applicant’s resume/CV, previous entrepreneurial experience, awards or recognitions received, completed projects, and other relevant factors.

The recipient of the Charles Kirkland Scholarship will receive $1,000 towards tuition fees—allowing them access to educational resources they wouldn’t otherwise have—in addition to textbooks and other associated materials needed throughout their studies. Furthermore, they will also receive mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs in order to help them achieve their goals successfully upon graduation The goal is that this scholarship program can act as a catalyst for furthering not only the recipient’s education but also his/her career prospects after graduation.
