GWS Scholarship Program
Each year, the Golden West Section Scholarship Committee selects one or more graduate or undergraduate students as recipients of the Golden West Section annual scholarship. The selection is made on the basis of a detailed application including a statement of goals, academic transcripts, research and community accomplishments, and letters of recommendations. The scholarship application (see below) is typically updated in November of each year. In recent years, our Section has offered up to $3,500 in scholarship funding for selected finalists. Candidates attend colleges and universities within the Golden West Section's geographic boundaries. Each of the Golden West Section scholarship recipients also receives a 1-year Student Membership to the International Air and Waste Management Association.
The Golden West Section is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic year for students attending colleges or universities in the Section's geographic area. The application deadline is March 2, 2020. The GWS Scholarship Application with instructions and submittal information can be found below in Word or Adobe PDF format:
