Sustainable Building Science Technology Senior wins Major Scholarship
August 2017: Amy Cho, a senior in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Sustainable Building Science Technology, has won a $8,250 Scholarship from the International Facility Management Association Foundation. Her award is from the San Diego IFMA Chapter, and includes, in addition to the scholarship funds, registration to IFMA's World Workplace Conference in Houston Texas in October, and all expenses related to that trip, for a total of $10,000.
This scholarship is the largest award being made in 2017. It was noted by the Executive Director of the Foundation that Cho's application and background made her a very desirable candidate for the scholarship.
Cho is employed by Honeywell as a Project Solutions Manager. She began the SBST program in the Fall of 2015, and has been the recipient of several other scholarships, including awards from the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-conditioning Engineers, Association of Energy Engineers and the South Seattle College Foundation. Cho is also a Certified Energy Manager.
Launched in 2014, the SBST Bachelor's degree is aimed at working adults with experience in building operations and management. The program builds on students' existing technical associate degrees and credentials, plus workplace experience, to achieve the Bachelor's Degree. The program was developed, in part, with the support of the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education division.
In May, the BAS in SBST was honored with the 2017 Energy Facilities Innovation Award, presented by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council and Washington State University's Energy Program.
