New Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) Scholarship Program

Earth Advantage is committed to a mission that values diversity, equity and inclusion, and we are excited to offer a new SHP scholarship opportunity to help advance these goals.

The Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) Scholarship Program is intended to serve populations who have been historically disadvantaged in the building industry and aims to provide green building technical training, professional development, and career advancement opportunities for members of these populations. Earth Advantage encourages women, people of color, veterans, and others who are underrepresented or disadvantaged in the building industry to apply.

Three (3) full-tuition scholarships worth $1,600 each will be awarded. Applicants are encouraged to seek employer approval to participate in the SHP course prior to submitting an application.
  • The deadline for application is 5PM on Monday, October 9, 2017.
  • Awardees will be notified on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
  • The SHP program begins on Friday, October 20, 2017.
