In 2014, NESEA established the Kate Goldstein Fund for Emerging Professionals to honor Kate Goldstein’s legacy of leadership, innovation, and ingenuity. The fund has provided scholarships for more than 20 individuals at the beginning of their careers to participate in NESEA conferences, courses, and events.
This fall, NESEA will be awarding 5 scholarships though this fund. Each person will receive a one-year NESEA membership, a day-pass to BuildingEnergy NYC, and registration for a BuildingEnergy Pro Tour of their choosing. This scholarship is funded through donations from members of the NESEA community.
