Getting to Zero - Student Opportunity

Calling all current students and young professionals!
You are invited to join us to discover how we are driving ultra-low and zero energy buildings to a tipping point that will transform the built environment. For the upcoming Getting to Zero National Forum this 17–19 Apr in
Pittsburgh we are hoping to have 50 students attend and are hosting a pre-conference workshop just for students and young professionals.

Students can receive Malek scholarships for registration and, in some cases, travel expenses. We are offering a special registration rate of $245 (you must be a full-time student to register at this rate and bring a valid student ID when you check-in at the conference) and $100 for a pre-event workshop. Young professionals should register for a full forum pass. To register visit <>.

We are pleased to introduce the George Malek Memorial Scholarship Fund for students and young professionals (with less than three years’ experience). This scholarship honors the legacy of NBI Board Member George Malek, director of energy-efficiency services at Commonwealth Edison and an industry leader. We can think of no better way to remember George’s spirit and commitment to energy efficiency than to instill the same in the next generation of advocates. 
If you are a current student of architecture, engineering, real estate development, public policy or another related field OR have been working for less than three years and need financial assistance, fill out our scholarship application <>. Applicants can receive scholarships for registration (100% for students; 50% for young professionals) and in some cases travel expenses.

  • 2 Mar: Rolling application process closes
  • 9 Mar: Last day that applicants are notified of acceptance

Acceptance is dependent on students volunteering 4–6 hours at the national forum event.
