Casey Dilworth Scholarship

As per a study done by the Faculty of University of Michigan in the year 2014, 50% college students report daytime sleepiness and 70% college students report insufficient sleep. As per a study by the Faculty of University of California in the year 2004, 30% college students' snore, this adds to the daytime sleepiness. Sleep is becoming more and more elusive amongst college students. Shorter duration of sleep is linked to increased chances of snoring. Snoring amongst college students is one of the earliest indicators of adult sleep-breathing disorders, which can cause serious health repercussions in future. My name is Katherine Dilworth. I am founder of Caseydilworth.com On this site we talk about snoring, its affects, and ways to control and combat it. Me and my team at Caseydilworth.com have launched a novel scholarship to help combat sleep deprivation amongst college students. We are inviting video submissions from college students explaining what techniques they use to attain restful sleep. These submissions will be reviewed by a panel of sleep experts, and the most restful sleep idea will be awarded a $500 scholarship.

Volunteering at WindAid

At WindAid Institute our mission is to provide a unique educational experience empowering people to create a sustainable world. We are based in Trujillo, Peru and build both 2.5 kW and 500 Watt wind turbines for small communities and families that are part of some 7 million people in Peru living with no access to grid electricity. Volunteering for WindAid Institute offers an opportunity to explore Peru and to understand firsthand the necessity of renewable energies. It is also an opportunity to learn in depth the design, construction, and installation of a wind turbine and see its direct impact on a rural community, a family or a school.

Volunteers get hands-on experience in all steps of designing, building and installing a wind turbine as part of a team. They will learn and gain expertise in such materials and processes as: carbon fiber, fiberglass, resin composites, steel structures and welding, electrical systems, aerodynamics, and much more; all the while getting to experience the life and cultures of Peru. There are no pre-requisite skills, we seek out passionate, enthusiastic individuals hungry to learn and create a positive change in the lives of others.

WindAid has had over 300 volunteers from 47 different countries with diverse educational backgrounds and interests who have gone on to do great things - many inspired to focus on sustainability or renewable energy - and become part of a global network of young and experienced professionals in these important fields. On our website, www.WindAid.org, you will find volunteer testimonials, as well as more info on the diverse wind energy projects we have completed and the opportunities we offer. You can also check out Facebook to learn more about the day-to-day life as a WindAid volunteer.

Our Project Groups are four weeks long, and if you are interested in a more immersive program we offer a limited number of Long-Term Volunteer opportunities. We have projects year-round with rolling application deadlines. Many 2017 projects are almost full, and we have just released the project opportunities for 2018, so apply soon!
