Evan Le, a senior studying mechanical engineering at the University of Nevada – Reno, was chosen by the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel to receive a full-ride scholarship to the conference.  

"As an aspiring Ph.D. student, this scholarship will be a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge of biodiesel and enhance my skills, so that I can make a meaningful contribution to bioenergy research," Le said.

Led by the National Biodiesel Board, the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel formed to demonstrate and grow support for biodiesel.  Students from a wide variety of colleges and universities have signed a declaration of support for the fuel, which is America's first and only commercially available advanced biofuel.  

Le's scholarship is supported by the United Soybean Board and the soybean checkoff.  The Ohio Soybean Council has provided a partial scholarship to Qingshi Tu, a University of Cincinnati Environmental Engineering student.  The National Biodiesel Board has contributed partial scholarships to several other students, including the four co-chairs of the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel:
