In order to identify these exceptional young scholars we are asking for your help in spreading the word to students that stand out to you in the energy field.

The 2018 Appalachian Energy Summit is a riveting three-day conference with discussion topics centered on current and future energy policies and practices in the nation. Student participants will include undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degree seeking students.

The theme for the 2018 Summit is “Leadership for Good”, and this year the Student Summit will feature breakout groups.
