The Center for Green Schools provides direct support to a limited number of school district staff each year in achieving their districts' sustainability goals. School systems apply directly to the Center to receive support through the School District Scholarship program and must designate one existing staff person to spend at least fifty percent of his or her time on sustainability-related programs and strategy.
When your district receives a School District Scholarship, your staff will benefit from professional development, targeted education and technical support from the Center and its partners.
Specific benefits available to Scholarship recipients includes participation in and travel to the School Sustainability Leaders Summit, an annual event that convenes staff responsible for sustainability programs from school districts large and small, giving them direct access to Resource Conservation Managers, Energy Managers, Facilities Directors and other industry experts.
Scholarship recipients are also provided fully funded travel to the annual Greenbuild Conference and Expo, with ongoing professional development support and direct access to webinars the nation’s leading green schools experts throughout the year.
