National Biodiesel Foundation Offers Student Scientist Grants

Cindy Zimmerman

Student scientists can qualify for an award of up to $2000 through the Beth Calabotta Sustainability Education Grant, established by the National Biodiesel Foundation in 2018 to help deserving full-time students interested in science, research, and biodiesel sustainability.

“Beth Calabotta had a passion for student education and advanced biofuels,” NBF President Jeff Lynn shared. “The Foundation is honored to provide financial support in her honor to continue her legacy.”

The grant was designed to provide financial aid to students studying initiatives that promote or support the use of biodiesel and renewable diesel. Based on Beth’s work, the Foundation and the National Biodiesel Board want to help the next generation who can produce environmental benefits with their work and research.

Students can apply for the grant online. Applications are due May 31, 2020, and more information can be found on the grant homepage. The grant winner will be announced by August 30, 2020.
