The purpose of the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter scholarship program is to provide green building & sustainability education and training to emerging and young professionals who may not normally have access or afford it.
Congratulations to our 2013 Scholarship Recipients!

We raise scholarship funds through our Annual ECORIDE, a fun and recreational bike ride and walk.
At the 2012 ride, we raised $4,000 with the help of sponsors and riders, which will support our 2013 scholarships. At the 2011 ride, we raised $3,000 which allowed us to provide two full and one partial scholarship to Greening the Heartland in Indianapolis, IN May 16 – 18, 2012. One scholarship recipient said, “I can honestly say that my experience at the Conference was amazing-it was such a great opportunity to learn so much about sustainability and meet some really interesting and knowledgeable people along the way!”
