Scholarship Opportunity – Green Roof + Wall Conference

Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) is offering a limited number of student scholarships to our Annual CitiesAlive Conference this September happening in Seattle, WA. I was wondering if you would be able to share my email and/or the application link with your student contact list? I have included more information below on GRHC and CitiesAlive.

This September 18-21, Seattle, Washington will host CitiesAlive: 15th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference with the theme Building Resilience and Equity Across Cascadia: People, Community, and Places.
