Upcoming Sustainable Business Events & Delongchamp Family Fund!

Are you interested in a career in sustainability? Are you looking to expand your network or learn about sustainable business initiatives? Green Money Journal is a great resource that compiles news stories and article in many areas of sustainable business such as Impact Investing and Energy & Climate topics. They also accumulate and post a Global Events Calendar that features over 60 sustainability events scheduled through November 2019.

You may be thinking- ‘this is great, but how can I afford to go to any of these events as a student?’ Lucky for you, Bentley University students have the opportunity to apply for the Delongchamp Family Fund! This is was established in 2015 to support undergraduate professional and co-curricular activities associated with studying sustainability and the triple-bottom line: people, planet, and profit. The fund was designed to allow students to explore opportunities that might otherwise be out of reach due to funding issues.  These include:

  • Attending a conference,

  • Going to a networking event,

  • Taking an unpaid or a limited paid internship,

  • Pursuing a research project, or

  • Creating a public awareness campaign around sustainability.

To learn more about this fund, other potential industry conferences, and the qualifications to apply, visit: https://www.bentley.edu/offices/sustainability/delongchamp-family-fund. Be sure to get your applications in soon- the next deadline to apply is Sunday, September 9th, 2018!

This is a fantastic opportunity to attend some great informative programs while networking with professionals in the space of sustainable business- so don’t miss your chance!
