May the 4th Be With You

Last Saturday a friend texted me and said, “we’re going to the movies at 6 pm.  “Okay,” I texted back. After working three weekends in a row delirium had finally set in, however, I was feeling spontaneous and the thought of a movie was appealing.  We bought our popcorn and as we sat in the theater it dawned on me I had no idea what movie we were seeing.  “What are we watching?” I said.
“It’s a surprise,” was his response. Then without any further ado I saw on the big screen the iconic blue text “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..”
“Star Wars!” I shouted much to the chagrin of my fellow moviegoers.
“Return of the Jedi.” he clarified.  I was giddy!!

I love the Star Wars movies and if you do too then you know that today is a very special day. I’d like to celebrate Star Wars Day with some classic quotes from the film and how they might be relevant to you as a student. 


“Your lack of faith disturbs me.”
Who said it: Darth Vader in “A New Hope” (1977). 

Like Darth Vader I generally always wear black but this isn’t about me, this is about you. It’s May and you’re worried you haven’t landed an REU just yet and you’re beginning to lose faith. See announcement above.  University of Kansas is actively recruiting NOW so apply.  Also follow us on INSTAGRAM. Programs email us all the time we post on our site and on instagram.  Do not lose faith!   


“Compassion, Which I Would Define as Unconditional Love, Is Essential to a Jedi’s Life.”
Who said it? Anakin Sywalker “Attack of the Clones” (2022)

Have a little compassion.  Even if you don’t mean it snarky comments like, ‘What you didn’t learn in high school?’ exude a lack of compassion.  If someone is asking a question they are trying to understand and thus trying to learn, isn’t that the point?  Whether you are in class, in a study group, or in the lab everyone at some point has experienced imposter syndrome, be like a Jedi and have some compassion. In other words don’t be a “half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder!” 


“I have a very bad feeling about this.”
Who said it? Han Solo “A New Hope” (1977)

When someone looks at your class schedule and says something like this, take it to heart. Chances are they aren’t doubting your capabilities, instead they are likely trying to convey that you have a packed schedule which likely doesn’t give you much time for self-care which is essential to learning.  My philosophy has always been “under commit and overdeliver” for a reason. 


“No One’s Ever Really Gone.”

Who said it? Luke Skywalker “The Last Jedi” (2017)

College is a series of goodbyes all along the way.  Maybe you’re graduating and are sad you’re not going to see your college friends.  Maybe you’re leaving for an internship or REU this summer.  Every single person in your life who makes an imprint is never really gone.  Chances these special friendships brought out the best in you.  Maybe you had a professor or a mentor who really inspired you even if you won’t see them regularly like you once did, their teachings and what they brought out in you will always be and thus as Luke said, “No one’s ever really gone.”

“Strike me down, and I will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”

Who said it? Obi-Wan Kenobi “A New Hope” (1977) 

Long ago in a galaxy not so far away  I told someone I wanted to create REU Finder they told me it was a terrible idea.  They said,” No one’s going to use it. They already have websites like that. It’s a waste of your time.” My analytics would suggest otherwise.  Have you ever had someone doubt you?  When you don’t have a strong support system you must make it your goal to find one. This is paramount and in the event that you don’t have one let me tell you, you are capable and you will achieve your goals.  Maybe the path will be bumpy and maybe the path will take long but nevertheless you will accomplish what you set out to do.  I did and I am glad I didn’t listen to naysayers.

There are so many opportunities to pursue (See list below).
I hope you apply to these and today and everyday “May the Force Be With You.”

REU Finder Speaker Series Presents Ken Forward of PG&E

On February 3rd we launched our spring speakers series kicking our first workshop workshop led by Ken Forward, Co-founder of PG&E’s Strategic Allies Leading Transparency Task Force (SALT) and President of the PG&E National Society of Black Engineers Network.  Ken’s career with PG&E began over twenty years ago beginning with an internship at PG&E’s Diablo Canyon Power Plant. Today he manages PG&E’s Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and Employee Network Groups (ENG).  


In his talk we learned about Ken’s career path as well as opportunities at PG&E.

Couldn’t make the talk?  Don’t worry we recorded the video so that you can watch Ken’s presentation on our REUFInder YouTube Channel and we’ve shared the slides presented at today’s talk .

Some fun Facts we learned from today’s presentation:   

1)  Apply early to summer internships. Although internships might be for summer the recruitment starts in fall. How do you apply?  Visit PG&E’s careers page and set up a Talent Profile and upload a copy of your resume.  Set up job alerts for internship so you won’t miss Summer Internship opportunities are available for undergraduates as well as graduate students 

2)  PG&E has not one but two scholarship programs!  

The Employee Resource Group and Engineering Network Group Scholarships support students that have a primary residence in that is a PG&E Customer in California at the time of the application.  Scholarships range from 1,000 to 6,000 each! You can also apply to more than one!    

In addition to the ERG/ENG Scholarships you can also apply to the Better Together STEM Scholarships supporting students studying STEM majors. 
Scholarships open on March 13, 2023.

3) LinkedIn is a great way to make not only connections with people but to also learn about a company’s culture and about opportunities with that company. Follow  PG&E on LinkedIn.  

4) PG&E Offers Rotational Programs.  What’s a Rotational Program? A Rotational Program gives you the opportunity to rotate through various departments for a few months at a time. By doing so you can explore which roles best fit your interests and you can also get a strong sense of not only the company’s operations as a whole but knowledge about the specific industry.  

5) PG&E offers a range of opportunities in a variety of majors.  You might think that PG&E is only looking for Civil, Electrical, or  Mechanical Engineers but they actually hire a lot of majors beyond those three. For instance, did you know that PG &E also hires life sciences majors, computer science majors, business majors, and many others.  As a company focused on the transmission and delivery of energy there are ample opportunities for talented candidates from a variety of backgrounds and educational levels.   

6) PG&E offers tuition reimbursement programs. Employees of PG&E may be eligible for reimbursement for the EIT, and the company has partnerships with a number of colleges in and out of California and out of state.  

8) Vocational Opportunities. In addition to summer internships PG & E has a number of vocational programs. Their PowerPathway program is nationally recognized and has an 85% overall hire rate.

9) PG&E scholarships for HBCU students.  Attend an HBCU?  PG&E’s Better Together STEM Scholarship program offers scholarships to  students pursuing studies at universities in California and HBCUs in the United States.  

10) Graduating High School Seniors, Returning Students, GED Recipients you are excellent candidates for PG&E scholarships and opportunities. If you know any graduating high school seniors encourage them to apply for  PG&E’s Scholarships. If you have siblings or other friends and family who are Graduating High School Seniors, Returning Students, GED Recipients  let them know about the scholarships and opportunities that they are eligible to apply to.
