Educational Foundation Awards First Scholarship to NAPEEF
The AOBA Educational Foundation’s first scholarship award of $5,000 was presented to the Educational Foundation of the National Association of Power Engineers (NAPEEF) in December to help offset costs of NAPEEF’s innovative, new “Ready 2 Work” program.
“We are very grateful to receive this generous contribution to NAPEEF’s successful Ready 2 Work program. While some of these funds will be used to underwrite curriculum development costs, $2,000 of this grant will be earmarked for four $500 scholarships to be used for Ready 2 Work classes in 2019,” said Pamela Haberstroh, NAPEEF Executive Director.
The AOBA Educational Foundation was formed in 2017 to support the development of the building engineering profession. The Foundation offered its first paid internship program for building engineers during the summer of 2018.
