BE the Future Student Scholarship

BE the Future scholarship recipients at BuildingEnergy NYC

About the Scholarship

In 2016, we launched BE the Future, a scholarship supporting current students' entry into the NESEA community. To date, we have welcomed more than 100 people through this initiative. Each student receives funding for a one-day pass to a BuildingEnergy conference, a pass to a BuildingEnergy Pro Tour, and a one-year NESEA Membership. In spring 2019, the BE the Future scholarship expanded to include support for a limited-number of scholarships for emerging professionals, defined as individuals who have worked in their field for less than five years.
