Environmental Major Scholarship
Two $1,200 awards will be made to environmental majors; one to an Undergraduate applicant and one to a Graduate applicant. The scholarship winners will be honored at the awards banquet held during the NEWEA Annual Conference in January in Boston, MA.
The award is based on understanding of the essay, written communication skills, demonstrated interest and participation in activities pertaining to environmental protection, extracurricular activities, and academic performance.
