Xcel Energy has a history of supporting environmental initiatives at Northland College, and the upcoming academic year will be no different.
On August 9, 2023, two Xcel Energy representatives—Social Investments Representative Jennifer Prochnow and Community Services Manager—Northern Wisconsin & Upper Peninsula Ken Disher—stopped by the College to present President Chad Dayton and Director of Grants and Sponsored Awards Lisa Williamson with an $11,000 grant from the Xcel Energy Foundation. The funds will support two $5,500 environmental scholarship awards for the 2023-24 academic year.
These scholarships are merit based. Recipients are full-time seniors in good academic standing with GPAs of 3.5 or higher in their majors. Recipients must also have a record of accomplishment in environmental stewardship efforts on campus or in the surrounding region.
