Brooklyn, NY —WRISE (Women of Renewable industries and Sustainable Energy) has selected six 2021 Rudd Mayer Memorial Fellows and two 2021 Wind at Our Backs Scholars. Each year, WRISE awards fellowships on a competitive basis to women and other underrepresented genders who are college students or recent graduates. The fellowship honors wind industry pioneer Rudd Mayer of Boulder, Colorado, who passed away in 2002.
In 2016, a new scholarship program launched for women in or graduating from degree and training programs for wind technicians. This new program is designed to help diversify the wind energy workforce and provide greater opportunities for women and underrepresented genders in the field.
