Applications for Greenbuild scholarships to open in Summer 2017

Greenbuild and USGBC is excited to provide scholarships to attend Greenbuild at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Specific scholarship opportunities will be posted here in Summer 2017.

Interested in applying for a scholarship and want to stay in the loop? Fill out this quick form!

Scholarships increase access to Greenbuild and serve as a point of entry for people new to the USGBC community. Scholarships are competitive, and preference is given to individuals from under-represented, low-income and other individuals who demonstrate a need for a scholarship. These scholarships are an investment in people who share a passion for USGBC’s vision and want to be champions for the green building movement. Hear how scholarship recipients benefited from participating in 2016!
