State of the Science Student Equity Fund

About the Student Equity Fund

The State of the Science Workshop recognizes that science, innovation, and management benefit from inclusion of diverse viewpoints, and we place an emphasis on improving accessibility to information and opportunities related to offshore wind energy and environmental or fisheries research. The State of the Science Workshop can help students build professional skills and networks, provide opportunities for collaboration, and increase understanding of career opportunities. 

 

The New York State Student Equity Fund will provide support for students from historically underrepresented groups with an interest in pursuing a career related to offshore wind energy development and environmental or fisheries research. Students will be matched with a workshop contact from the Environmental Technical Working Group to ensure students have someone to connect with at the Workshop.


The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is pleased to support the New York State Student Equity Fund to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and registration for a limited number of eligible students to attend the 2024 State of the Science Workshop. Applicants should be currently enrolled in a higher education program and reside in an area of New York State that meets criteria used to identify a disadvantaged community, Environmental Justice Zone , or HUB Zones community.
