Advanced Power Alliance Launches Clean Energy Scholars Program in Oklahoma

Mon, 27 Jan 2020 14:47:33 CST

Advanced Power Alliance Launches Clean Energy Scholars Program in Oklahoma The Advanced Power Alliance (APA) is proud to commence its 2020 Clean Energy Scholar Program with its first scholar selection, Sarah Smallwood, a senior at the University of Oklahoma. The APA’s Clean Energy Scholar Program is a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive apprenticeship in the development and promotion of clean energy. Over the course of six months, the experience provides students with an in-depth look at the renewables industry from community outreach programs, policy development and career pathways. The goal of the program is to identify and help place the region’s most promising college students into roles that will help advance clean energy development and policies.

Mark Yates, vice president of the APA says the organization has plans to grow the program and plans to announce additional Clean Energy Scholars in the future across its geographical footprint of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

“The clean energy sector is among the fastest-growing jobs in Oklahoma with long-term career opportunities. This program is part of our workforce development goals to grow and retain Oklahomabased graduates in the renewable energy industry,” said Mark Yates, vice president of the Advanced Power Alliance. “Sarah Smallwood is an excellent choice to launch Oklahoma Power Alliance’s Clean Energy Scholar program. She has a strong academic record at the University of Oklahoma, and we think her passion for clean energy will be advantageous.”

Smallwood is a senior at the University of Oklahoma, pursuing simultaneous degrees in Journalism with an emphasis in Public Relations, and Environmental Studies. She is a 2015 graduate of Norman High School. “I look forward to learning more about the renewable energy industry and am honored to have been selected for this opportunity,” Smallwood said.
