SMUD announced today that the application period for its Powering Futures college scholarship and internship program is now open. The program awards up to 21 scholarships of up to $5,000 each to undergraduate students who are enrolled or plan to enroll in an accredited two or four-year college or university. Students must live in SMUD’s service area or have a legal guardian who is a SMUD customer.

The awards are based on academic merit and financial need, and preference will be given to students who have declared a major relevant to SMUD. Some scholarships may also include a paid internship at SMUD in 2021 or 2022.

The deadline to apply for the scholarships is March 1, 2021. Scholarships are for the 2021/2022 academic year.
