Two Nebraska electrical and computer engineering students - seniors Megan Stokey and Matthew Penne - have been chosen as IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholars for 2018-19.

Stokey earned the PES scholarship for the second straight year.

The Nebraska honorees, who will receive up to $3,000 for the current academic year, were among the 174 chosen from American and Canadian universities from 381 applicants.

The scholarships are given annually to students majoring in electrical engineering who are also high achievers - possessing strong grade-point averages with "distinctive extracurricular commitments" and who are committed to exploring the power and energy field.
