Scholarship Description

The Details:

The way we build greatly affects our health, quality of life and our limited natural resources. The impact that treads from building is significant to energy use, water use and carbon dioxide emissions. Through green building processes and low-impact, sustainable development practices, we reduce the negative impact on the environment, natural resources and ourselves.

Here at TRUEGRID™, we strive to inform others of sustainable alternatives that don’t work against but WITH nature.

TRUEGRID™ is offering our TRUE|U student scholarships to advance careers across a diverse range of sustainable business, green building and related environmental areas. Three scholarships will be awarded to assist with tuition, educational fees and other school-related expenses.

  • First Prize: $2,500
  • Second Prize: $500

TRUEGRID™’s TRUE|U scholarship program allows us to invest in individuals who share our vision and want to be at the forefront of this movement.
