  3. Bioenergy Harvest and Logistics
  4. Conversion Technologies for Bioenergy Production

Scholarships were awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants must have completed at least a bachelors degree from a recognized university or college, and must enroll and participate in one of the above courses to receive the scholarship. Students who completed all four graduate bioenergy courses were potentially eligible for a graduate certificate in bioenergy from Penn State. In addition, outstanding students were eligible to apply to continue onward for a Masters of Professional Studies in Renewable Energy and Sustainability Systems.
