Sustainability entrepreneur Charlie Szoradi is offering $1 million in green-jobs scholarships through his GreenandSave Eco Academy in Devon. To qualify, recipients must be either U.S. veterans, home-installation contractors, home inspectors or real estate agents, and apply by July 4.

The money would be used for training specialists in green building and energy conservation. For more information, visit www.EcoAcademy.com.

"We're seeding the job opportunity market to ensure we provide opportunities that attract, educate, train and provide excellent, long-term careers for a whole new class of green-energy workers," Szoradi said.

GreenandSave provides return-on-investment data to help guide homeowners on reducing energy and operating expenses. - Diane Mastrull
