Three people gathered around a table working on some papers.Energy Trust of Oregon is seeking proposals from qualified individuals with excellent research capabilities and an interest in advancing net-zero-energy buildings in Oregon. The Net Zero Fellowship aims to address potential barriers slowing the widespread adoption of net-zero design and to grow the community constructing these remarkable buildings. Energy Trust may award up to two fellowship grants, not to exceed a total of $50,000, to support research over 12 to 18 months.

Fellowships are open to individuals and companies with well-defined proposals and a demonstrated ability to deliver.
