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.
Thanks to all who joined us for the 4th Annual ECORIDE on Sunday, October 20 at BWorks and help raise funds for our scholarship program! Proceeds from our 2013 ride will support our 2014 Scholarships – congratulations to last year’s recipients below!
2012 Greening the Heartland Scholarships:
- Krystal Chandler
- Admo Ogun
2012 LEED Green Associate Scholarships:
- Eugene Taylor
- Joseph Davidson
- Todd Turner
Scholarships help people from our territory attend:
- Regional Sustainability Conferences such as Greening the Heartland
- Local professional development and continuing education
- LEED Exam Preparation Courses offered by the Chapter
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!”
