SBSE Awards and Scholarships

SBSE is pleased to have been able to offer a wide range of scholarship opportunities during the 2014 calendar year. The deadline for the last of these 2014 scholarships has passed. There are currently NO ACTIVE postings on this page.

The SBSE Board of Directors recently approved a scholarship budget for the 2015 calendar year. This budget will be implemented through travel support opportunities that will be posted here when full information about the various venues becomes available. Expect to see calls for the following: SBSE Student Retreat Travel Scholarships; Cook Trust Developing Country Faculty Retreat Travel Scholarships; SBSE Solar 2015 Travel Scholarships; 2015 PLEA Student Travel Scholarships. Check here for updates.

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

- 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 2014 PLEA conference. Successful applicants will have a paper accepted for publication and present their work at the conference. PLEA 2014 will be held in Ahmedabad, India in December.

- SBSE Student Retreat Scholarships
These scholarships—up to six at $580 each­ and 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 2014 Retreat will be held in June at Biosphere 2 near Tucson, AZ.
- Jeffrey Cook Memorial 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 2014 Retreat will be held at Biosphere 2 near Tucson, AZ, Thursday, Jun 19—Sunday, Jun 22.
- SBSE Student Travel Scholarships to WSB14
SBSE is pleased to support (via contributions from SBSE members) student participation in the World Sustainable Building 2014 conference. WSB14 will be held in Barcelona this summer, and up to four scholarships (at $600 each) will be available to actively-participating students.
