RFA, RFF Offering Two Scholarships to National Ethanol Conference

December 10, 2018


For the 10th consecutive year, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is partnering with the Renewable Fuels Foundation (RFF) to offer scholarships to students who are interested in attending the National Ethanol Conference (NEC), scheduled for Feb. 11-13, 2019 in Orlando. Two scholarships are available to students in higher education to attend NEC. The scholarship covers the cost of the conference—a $925 value—as well as the airfare and lodging costs associated with attending the conference. "The NEC is the U.S. ethanol industry's most widely attended annual conference," said Dana Lewis, chairperson of RFF and chief administrative officer for Redfield Energy. "The conference provides excellent educational and network opportunities with top-notch experts in the industry. I would highly recommend this scholarship to any student interested in pursuing a career in agriculture or learning more about the U.S. ethanol industry," she added. This year's NEC, "Powered with Renewed Energy," offers the opportunity to hear the latest ethanol policy insights, emerging trade opportunities, and domestic marketplace developments. Interested students should submit a 500-word essay explaining how their attendance at the NEC will help them achieve their future goals. They should also submit two letters of recommendation and an up-to-date resume. Scholarships are only available to students who are attending a U.S.institution of higher learning or foreign students who are affiliated with the U.S. ethanol industry. For full consideration, applications must be received by Jan. 7, 2019. For more information or to apply, visit:
