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 will accept applications for the 2017-2018 academic year starting in the late fall of 2017 for students attending colleges or universities in the Section's geographic area. Please return to this website at that time to apply. Last year's application is below for reference.
