As businesses and individuals alike recover from the early economic fallout of the pandemic, one organization is offering relief for a group of students and young professionals. In honor of its 10-year anniversary GBRI, Green Building Research Institute, is offering a number of scholarships to those preparing for the LEED Green Associate, LEED AP or WELL AP exam. The scholarships are also available to those looking “to maintain their credential.”
“Don’t let the pandemic keep you away from where you want to be. We are one human tribe, and we shall overcome this together,” GBRI president and director of sustainability Jeslin Varghese, said. “This scholarship is GBRI’s way of thanking students and professionals and recognizing their perseverance in the face of adversity.”
Instead of a formal application process, GBRI is encouraging those interested to use “the honor system.” The organization has listed the scholarship codes on the scholarship page and applicants would need to enter it when registering for their respective certification or exam preparation course. Depending on the code used, certification courses can be reduced up to 50 percent and exam prep courses up to 100 percent.
