Now in its 12th year, the program has been named in honor of Bob Sather, who was involved in education before helping to found Ace Ethanol in Wisconsin. Sather, who also chaired the Renewable Fuels Foundation, passed away in June 2020.
The 26th annual National Ethanol Conference will be held in an entirely digital format Feb. 16-18, 2021. Four scholarships are available to cover the cost of the conference registration fee, a $249 value. This year’s digital event, including online networking and on-demand content after the show, will allow students greater flexibility to participate.
Those interested should submit a 500-word essay explaining how their participation in the NEC will help them achieve their future goals. They should also submit one letter 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 February 5.
