George Malek

We are pleased to offer the George Malek Memorial Scholarship Fund for students and young professionals (with less than three years’ experience).  This scholarship honors the legacy of  NBI Board Member George Malek, director of energy efficiency services at Commonwealth Edison and an industry leader. We can think of no better way to remember George’s spirit and commitment to energy efficiency than to instill the same in the next generation of advocates.

Applicants can receive scholarships for registration and in some cases travel expenses.  If you are a current student of architecture, engineering, real estate development, public policy or another related field OR have been working for less than three years and need financial assistance, fill out our scholarship application:

September 7: Rolling application period opens

December 7: Rolling application period closes

December 18: Last day that applicants are notified of acceptance

Acceptance is dependent on students volunteering 4-6 hours at the Getting to Zero Forum.
