Green-building Fellowships Available for Under-resourced Colleges

February 10, 2010

Second Nature, a national nonprofit organization advancing sustainability in the higher education sector, is seeking applications for the 2010 Kresge Fellowship Program created to address some of the challenges faced by under-resourced schools to "build green" on their campuses.

Fellowships will be awarded to 25 under-resourced institutions. The application deadline is March 15.  Final decisions will be announced on April 15.

The fellowships will provide up to $2,000 toward registration, accommodations, and travel expenses for fellows to attend one national green building-related conference.  Facilities directors, campus planners, and vice presidents of finance and business are eligible.  Fellows will be funded to take part in learning and networking opportunities, such as the 2010 Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) Conference and the US Green Building Council's Greenbuild Conference. They also will become members of the Kresge Fellowship Network.

For more information regarding the program guidelines, application form, and other details, visit the CampusGreenBuilder Web site.
