Since 2009, the California Architectural Foundation has participated with Savings by Design to offer this scholarship to students who demonstrate serious investigation into alternative energy sources and energy conservation integrated with outstanding design. “Savings by Design“, a statewide program funded by California utility customers and administered by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, San Diego Gas and Electric, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, is sponsoring these scholarships.
The “Savings by Design” scholarships are a component of the Mel Ferris Scholarship program. Students will be selected to receive the “Savings by Design” scholarships by the Mel Ferris Scholarship jury.
This partnership between the California Architectural Foundation and “Savings by Design” illustrates our commitment to the advancement of sustainable communities through support of research and education.
