Financing and Deploying Clean Energy Certificate Program

Important Dates

Administrative and Program Calendars for the 2021/2022 Cohort

Below are important dates for applying to the program, and the program calendar. You can download a pdf version of this page here.


Due to the unprecedented volume of applications that we received this year, the admission decisions will be delayed. We expect to be able to send admission and scholarship decisions at some point during the week of April 12, 2021. We are unable to update everyone individually about the status of their applications, so we greatly appreciate your patience as we finalize this year’s cohort!

We will then let people admitted to the program know of any updated payment and enrollment dates, as well as the date of the Open House where admitted participants can ask questions to a panel of current and/or past participants.

The program dates will not be affected.]
