In BCT we see a tremendous benefit for our students when they attend conferences and trade shows (e.g. Greenbuild or the International Builder’s Show). To support this, we are offering up to $100 per student to offset some of the registration and travel expenses (depending on availability of funds).

If you are a student in the BCT major or a grad student in Sustainable Building Systems and are interested in attending either a conference, workshop, or a trade show, fill out the following form prior to the event and tell us why this is important to you. After verifying your enrollment, we will get in touch with you regarding payment. Nothing is free, however, the following conditions apply (for after the event):

  • You must send the program director an image of yourself at the conference that shows your (readable!) attendee badge. Other proofs of attendance may be accepted but must be provided.
  • You must submit a receipt for at least the $100.
  • You must agree that upon your return you (individually or as a group) may be asked to present to other students in one of our classes what you learned or saw at the event.

IMPORTANT: Please don’t submit this form if you are not eligible. We cannot support non-BCT students.

All fields are required.
