About Liberty Power Bright Horizons Scholarship
The Bright Horizons Scholarship was established in 2013 when Liberty Power co-founders David Hernandez and Alberto Daire, committed $100,000 over five years to the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USHCCF). The scholarship was created to support and reward high-achieving college students currently pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with a passion of pursuing a career in energy and the environment.
The 2017 Bright Horizons Scholarship program marked the fifth and final year of the partnership between Liberty Power and the USHCC Foundation. We were honored to collaborate with such an amazing partner and we were thrilled for the opportunity to help empower the next generation of leaders.
