Environmental Engineering Graduate Paves the Way for Women in STEM through a Renewable Energy & Sustainability Program in Iceland
I loved learning about the geothermal resources in Iceland and how they were used to both create electricity and heat homes. The way the country has harnessed their resources and used them in their everyday lives is so inspirational to me. I hope that the world will learn from Iceland and look for ways to be more sustainable.
n June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, TX, and announced the end of the Civil War and the end of slavery. It is on this day every year since that we celebrate “Juneteenth” as the end of slavery in the United States. It is a day that we celebrate ancestors and leaders who fought to be liberated. We celebrate their power, resiliency, and tenacity.

We also encourage you to learn more about AAPI Heritage Month and get involved through additional resources.
From a Start Up to a Sustainability Study Abroad Program: How Patrick Applied his Passion for Renewable Energy in Iceland
When Fall 2021 rolled around and I saw the TGP scholarship opportunity, I thought I’d apply not expecting much. When I found out that I actually got it, I was like “I guess I’m actually doing this!”.

Global experiences have definitely shaped me into the person I am today through increased cultural awareness and sensitivity.

A Construction Science Major Turns Lessons into Opportunity after a Sustainability Study Abroad Program
AJ Ewing spent his past Winter Break a little bit differently than most students, by studying abroad on our GREEN Nepal program. As a Construction Science major, AJ notes that he was nervous coming into the study abroad program having no prior experience in sustainability or electrical/solar grids, but he was excited and eager to learn. As soon as he arrived, all his nerves were gone as he was welcomed by our team and ready to dive in. Now, he can honestly say that when he thinks of The GREEN Program, he thinks of “family away from home.”
