The Birmingham Chapter of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE) is now accepting applications for its 2021 scholarship program. AABE is an organization of energy professionals dedicated to including African Americans and other minorities in the discussion and development of energy policies, regulations, R&D technologies and environmental issues. One of the purposes of AABE is to encourage minority students to pursue careers in energy-related fields and to provide scholarships for such students. The AABE Birmingham Scholarship Program offers a Premier Award of $5,000, which is awarded to a high school senior who demonstrates superior achievement and community involvement.
