To cultivate the "solar energy leaders, policy-makers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow," the Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF) partnered with six Pennsylvania colleges and universities to launch Solar Scholars, a solar-energy education program for university-level students, said to be the first and only program of its kind in the nation.

The Solar Scholars program is a way "to begin building critical thought leadership and the foundation for sustainable market for PV technology right here in Pennsylvania." -- Dr. Rex A. D'Agostino, President & Executive Director of The Sustainable Energy Fund
