Applications Open for the 2024 Green Schools Conference

Scholarship applications are due Dec. 22.

The Green Schools Conference (GSC), co-hosted by the USGBC Center for Green Schools and the Green Schools National Network (GSNN), brings together everyone involved in creating and advocating for green schools, with a focus on those leading their schools and school systems toward whole-school sustainability. The three-day event serves as a forum for the green schools community, inspiring and facilitating the movement’s progress.

In general sessions, attendees study interdisciplinary subject and work with colleagues to address specific difficulties, discuss best practices, and improve green school programs across the country.

The GSC is looking for suitable applicants who are working to develop green schools for the Green Schools Conference Scholarship Program for the 2024 event, which will be held March 5-7 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The USGBC and GSNN are providing a limited number of scholarships for in-person attendance at the 2024 Green Schools Conference activities.

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 22 and will close at 11:59 p.m. ET.
