Proton OnSite Scholarship

Scholarship Description

The Proton OnSite scholarship program has been successful in supporting future leaders in science and technology, through college scholarships. A restructuring of the program, and one that focuses on a contest aspect, builds on that history while broadening the potential number of entries. Therefore, we are seeking participants who demonstrate passion, drive, curiosity and DIY initiative in applying science and technology to solve real world situations with a broad-reaching program.

The Proton OnSite Scholarship Program is fueling the next generation of scientific innovation by recognizing and awarding high school seniors who can find new and creative ways for generating and/or using hydrogen powered by renewable and sustainable energy sources such as sun or wind.
