(Silver Spring, MD) — Key decision makers at schools, colleges and universities involved in the design, build, management or renovation of an educational facility are invited to apply for a scholarship to attend EDspaces 2020, November 11-13 in Charlotte, NC.
Now in its tenth year, the EDspaces Scholarship Program funds registration and hotel accommodations for facility planners, superintendents, purchasing officers, curriculum developers, and related staff employed by schools, districts, colleges and universities. The program assists school and college officials in making more effective decisions for their ongoing and future facility construction or renovation projects and to take part in the discussion on the impact of technology, pedagogy and space on student learning.
“EDspaces afforded me the opportunity to get my CEUs, see products and meet the people behind them,” says Leslie Hannah, NCIDQ, IDA, LEED AP Interior Designer of Campus Architecture at the University of Calgary. “All of this will help me make a difference in future student outcomes.”
Last year, 155 scholarship recipients had bonds and plans for nearly $10 billion in renovation and construction projects for 2019–2021. The program provided key decision makers from 128 universities, community colleges and schools/districts with high-quality education, tours and networking crucial to their professional development.
The EDspaces Scholarship Program is a competitive application process. Eligibly is determined upon completion and submission of an application online. Applications provide information about planned renovation, re-purposed spaces, or construction projects. Scholarship applications are evaluated based on the projected number and value of potential building projects and additional eligibility criteria. Completed applications are due by April 30, 2020.
The global education community planning, designing, and managing innovative learning environments gathers annually at EDspaces, where learning comes to life through the convergence of space, technology and pedagogy. www.ed-spaces.com
