The NSSEA community - thought leaders in the movement to transform schools into healthy, high-performing learning environments - understands the importance of building and renovating schools that will promote healthy living and maximize learning. That's why we're pleased to once again be offering an opportunity for decision-makers at a school, college or university involved in any part of the design, building or renovation of an educational facility to apply for an NSSEA Educational Facility Grant to attend EdSpaces, December 4-6, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas.

EdSpaces showcases the newest and the best products for educational facilities and provides education and training for the key stakeholders responsible for school planning and maintenance. With the partnership between NSSEA and USGBC’s Center for Green Schools we are moving forward with our joint vision to make EdSpaces the meeting place for the many relevant participants in the green schools movement whose jobs are to design, furnish, operate or maintain educational institutions.

The NSSEA Educational Facility Grant Award package brings the buyers together with the products and ideas needed to ensure a healthy learning space. The grant includes roundtrip coach airfare to San Antonio for EdSpaces, hotel accommodation for up to three nights at an official NSSEA host hotel and full conference registration to attend career-enriching educational sessions, exhibits and networking events. 

To be eligible for a grant, school district superintendents, facility planners, school business and/or purchasing officials must complete a brief application and provide information regarding current and future building projects taking place on your campus. To be awarded a grant, your facility must have an identified and approved renovation or construction project in place. In 2012 over 120 grants were awarded to school districts and colleges, so don’t miss your opportunity to see the best products, discover what trends are changing the learning environment, and connect with others facing the same challenges in facility design and management.

Apply for a grant today to help both you and your learning environment reach its full potential. Completed applications are due by June 28, 2013. For more information on the conference, visit www.Ed-Spaces.com.
