SBSE Awards and Scholarships

To support and inspire the next generation of building science educators, SBSE is pleased to offer scholarships to students interested in teaching building science (or a closely related academic area). SBSE intends to offer the scholarships listed below during the 2016 calendar year. Each of these opportunities has specific application requirements and deadlines. Click on the link for each scholarship to see application requirements and deadlines.

SBSE Student Retreat Scholarships
These scholarships—up to six at $600 each, funded through sales of the Sun Angle Calculator—are intended to provide support for students with a keen interest in pursuing a future teaching position in environmental control systems or a closely related area of building science. The scholarships are aimed at graduate students with prior experience as a teaching assistant in an environmental control systems (building science) course. The 2016 Retreat will be held in San Francisco, CA.

Jeffrey Cook Memorial Retreat Scholarship
In honor of the late Jeffrey Cook, this scholarship is offered to one or two faculty members from a developing country to help defray the costs of attending the SBSE retreat. The award will be based primarily on the benefits of the scholarship to the applicant's teaching, institution, and country. The 2016 Retreat will be held in San Francisco, CA.

SBSE Student Travel Scholarships to Solar 2016
SBSE is pleased (via generous contributions from John Reynolds) to support student participation in the annual ASES solar conference. Plans for Solar 2016 are being formulated. Up to four scholarships (at $600 each) may be available to actively-participating students.

SBSE Award for Best Student Paper at Solar 2016
SBSE anticipates recognizing one or more outstanding SBSE-related student papers that are presented at Solar 2016. This recognition will come in the form of a certificate and public acknowledgement.

Jeffrey Cook Student Travel Scholarship to PLEA
In honor of the late Jeffrey Cook, travel support will be awarded to up to three students actively participating in the 2016 PLEA conference. Successful applicants will have a paper accepted for publication and present their work at the conference. PLEA 2016 will be held in Los Angeles, CA in July.

As always, the purpose of the SBSE scholarships is to support and inspire the next generation of building science educators.
