Air & Waste Management Association Great Basin Chapter 2019 Scholarship

Objective: The Great Basin Chapter of the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Scholarship Award Program to recognize outstanding students pursuing a career in air quality, waste management, environmental management/law, or sustainability. Founded in 1907, the AWMA’s mission is to assist in the professional development and critical environmental decision-making of our members to benefit society. It provides a neutral forum where all viewpoints of an environmental management issue (technical, scientific, economic, social, political, and public health) receive equal consideration.


Up to $1,000 in scholarship(s) will be awarded. Scholarship awards and amounts will be distributed on the basis of academic record and career goals as judged by an independent review panel. The successful scholarship recipients will be presented with their award during the spring semester and will be honored at the Great Basin Chapter annual dinner in the fall of 2019. One free student A&WMA membership for 1 year will be reimbursed for each awardee.


Applicants must be enrolled in programs at a Utah school of higher education for the 2019 – 2020 school year that will lead to employment in the environmental profession. The minimum required cumulative GPA to submit an application is 3.0. Previous AWMA GBC scholarship recipients are not eligible.

Evaluation Criteria

Applicants will be evaluated based on GPA, description of career goals in relation to AWMA’s mission, extra-curricular activities, and reference letter. All applications will be judged by an independent review panel, without consideration of sex, race, national origin, age, or physical disability.
