Building the Future: Scholarship Fund

The Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment (STBE) Advisory Council at Appalachian State University recognizes the need to promote cultural diversity and address systemic inequities in our industries. We are proud to contribute to the new student scholarship endowment for underrepresented undergraduate students in the STBE program.

Meet the first scholarship recipient, Mikayla Posey! 

Eden Village Logo

Eden Village

Eden Village is a 32-unit tiny home community specially designed to provide permanent homes for chronically homeless individuals in the Wilmington, NC area. The 400 sq ft tiny homes are energy efficient and built to support individuals with a chronic mental health or physical health condition. The community will provide residents with access to support services, personal enrichment, social case work resources, and a stable community environment which is known to be a key factor in improving health treatment results. We are excited to imagine a city where no one sleeps outside with Eden Village as their solar partner.

Habitat for Humanity & Rotary Club

We are excited to work with the Rotary Club of East Chapel Hill and SolarEquity to help Habitat for Humanity homes go solar! The Rotary Club is a service organization connecting community members and service projects. SolarEquity is a student-led group out of UNC Chapel Hill that facilitates clean energy adoption to empower North Carolina communities. Habitat for Humanity of Orange County has helped 300 families achieve homeownership and over 200 families repair existing homes. In February, we installed the first solar system on a Habitat for Humanity home in Orange County.

Hope Renovations

Hope Renovations’ mission is to inspire hope in women and seniors for a joyful and fulfilling future. There are three focuses to this mission: empowering women to pursue living-wage careers in the construction trades, providing repairs and renovations that enable older adults to age in their homes, and filling a workforce shortage for trades employers with a new generation of tradeswomen. We are proud to support Hope Renovations’ mission as their Vision Partner.

Project Pando

Project Pando is a volunteer-driven tree farm led by local tree care company, and our B Corp friend, Leaf and Limb. Based out of Williamson Preserve in Raleigh, the goal of this 10 acre tree farm is to provide access to free trees, refurbish the biodiversity of our community, and create an open-source blueprint for others to join the tree planting movement. We look forward to volunteering with Project Pando and finding creative ways to support their mission!
