ACADEMIC YEAR 2019-2020 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
The objective of this scholarship program is to aid and encourage students who plan to enter the field of air and waste management or a related environmental field. The
scholarship recipients will be decided based on a technical paper competition.
All undergraduate and graduate college / university students who are enrolled in the state of Arizona for the academic years 2018-2019 and plan to be enrolled in 2019-2020
and are in a program of study leading to a career in an environmentally-related field are eligible.
Technical Paper Competition: There will be up to three awards for best technical paper (award = $1,500 1st prize). This paper must be an original work, solely authored by the applicant and may consist of one of the following:
- A literature review, including a section on relevance and recommendations.

The awards are made based on the quality of the paper submitted (relevance of topic, organization, writing ability, quality of research plan, technical merit, bibliography). We strongly suggest that the applicants consult with a faculty member and request that they review their work.
The award winners will also receive a student membership in the International A&WMA and local Grand Canyon A&WMA section. A committee of AWMA Grand Canyon Section members will judge the entries. Entries must be based on a technical paper and be received on or before the deadline.
