Power to the Teachers
Lehigh's Keystone Smart Grid program supports broad knowledge transfer in energy systems


Through a U.S. Department of Energy grant, Lehigh University's Energy Systems Engineering Institute (ESEI) has established the Keystone Smart Grid Fellowship program and is now actively seeking candidates for this highly-selective program.

The Fellowship is primarily designed to support Pennsyvania educators from K-12 and community/junior college settings who seek to better understand the landscape of the modern power industry through immersion in Lehigh's innovative 10-month, 30-credit Master's of Engineering in Energy Systems Engineering. The program's intention is to "train the trainers" who will educate tomorrow's electric energy workforce.

The Keystone Fellowship program privdes for full and partial scholarships, as follows:

Full Fellowship (100% tuition)

Candidates would ideally be individuals interested in stepping out of K-12 or junior/community college teaching positions to pursue advanced engineering studies.
Partial Fellowship (50% tuition)

Candidates are recent B.S. graduates of science or engineering related disciplines, or early-career utility/energy professionals.

The Smart Grid Fellowship is a full-time degree program at Lehigh University. A minimum of a B.S. degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, industrial engineering, computer science or a closely-related field (e.g., physics) is required, along with GRE test scores and two letters of recommendation.

Students of the program work closely in teams and with industry partners to engage deeply in engineering issues surrounding next-generation electric power and/or manufacturing technologies These problems specifically related to integrating renewable technologies and seamlessly linking to an intelligent grid system.

Candidates for the Fellowships must possess an interest in training workers for smart grid careers in the electric power sector, e.g., systems analysis, controls, energy efficiency, network optimization, etc. Demonstration of effective written and oral communication skills is also required.

Join us on Wednesday November 2nd at 5:30 pm or Thursday November 3rd at 8:30 am to learn about Lehigh University's Energy Systems Engineering Masters program and the Smart Grid Fellowship opportunity for Pennsylvania educators.
