Second Nature and The Kresge Foundation have announced that Kresge Fellowships to advance green building at under-resourced colleges and universities have been awarded to 15 institutions of higher learning. Funding for these fellowships was provided by The Kresge Foundation as part of a grant to Second Nature's Advancing Green Building in Higher Education initiative.
The selected institutions include community and technical colleges, Historically Black Colleges & Universities, tribal colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, and religiously-affiliated institutions. The fellowships provide senior members of the college and university community with education on green building and sustainability in higher education as well as peer-to-peer networking opportunities.
