New E. On Scholarships for PEIK Success

The UK College of Engineering and the Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky (PEIK) have recently awarded more than twenty new E. On scholarships, which are reflective of our commitment for providing opportunities and support for junior and senior engineering majors. The students who were selected to receive this merit-based scholarship demonstrated strong interest in power and energy and already completed at least three courses towards the multi-disciplinary engineering PEIK certificate.

These annual scholarships continue to be supported by the endowment established years ago at UK by E. On / Kentucky Utilities. More information is available on PEIK website: https://www.engr.uky.edu/power/education/scholarship-opportunities

PEIK educates the next generation of power and energy engineers at UK and offers both Undergraduate Certificates and Graduate Certificates. In addition to fundamental multi-disciplinary courses on Power Generation, Power Systems, and Power Policy and Economics, PEIK faculty at UK also offers more specialized courses on Smart Grid, Power Protection, Electric Distribution, Sustainable and Renewable Energy, and many others with a total of more than a thousand annual enrolments.
