I'm pleased to announce that Thomas Larson, IPEC, was selected as this year’s Circumnavigators winner. The title of his research proposal is "Outrunning the Grid: Incentivizing Local Investment in Rural Electrification Projects with Revenue-Generating Utilization of Small Solar Systems".

One member of the SFS Class of 2013 will be awarded a $9000 Raymond Dinsmore Fellowship by the Circumnavigators Foundation to undertake a round-the-world research project next summer. The Circumnavigators Club Foundation states that the research project must “explore an international problem or issue and generally contribute to our understanding of world conditions.” Further, your proposed research project must necessitate travel and must pose a question that could not be answered using material that is readily available in the United States.
