Supporting Students and Hydrogen Education

Each year, the Hydrogen Student Design Contest provides students with an incredibly unique, in-depth look into the hydrogen industry. Through the Contest, students learn practical skills and knowledge related to the fast-moving world of hydrogen technology. By supporting the contest, sponsors support the education of the next generation of engineers and leaders in clean energy.

The Hydrogen Education Foundation relies 100% on the generous contributions of sponsors to support the operation of each year’s Contest. Through financial and in-kind contributions, sponsors provide the resources needed to make the Contest a prominent vehicle for hydrogen education.
