In order to prepare the next generation for the environmentally and economically sound practice of solid waste, SWANA has developed several scholarship and internship programs for students studying in fields related to solid waste management.


SWANA typically distributes $20,000 to $25,000 a year in four to five scholarships through this effort in three categories:

 

  • Category 1 award – high school senior entering junior or four-year college/university – any field of study.
    • Must have a SWANA member as a sponsor. 
    • Submit their application to the Chapter where their sponsor is a member.
  • Category 2 award – university junior or senior studying something that has potential for a career in solid waste management.  Please note that this is not strictly a science and engineering requirement.
    • Must be a SWANA student member or have a SWANA member as a sponsor. 
    • Joining as a SWANA student member is free. They are encouraged to join the Chapter where their school or university is located and submit their application to that Chapter.  
    • If submitting under the aegis of a sponsoring SWANA member, student should submit to the Chapter where their sponsor is a member.


  • Robert P. Stearns/SCS Engineers Scholarship – graduate student studying environmental science, engineering or other field related to solid waste or resource management. 
    • Must be a SWANA student member or have a SWANA member as a sponsor.
    • Joining as a SWANA student member is free. They are encouraged to join the Chapter where their school or university is located and submit their application to that Chapter.  
    • If submitting under the aegis of a sponsoring SWANA member, student should submit to the Chapter where their sponsor is a member.  

 

Each of the applications for these three categories should be to the SC SWANA Chapter by May 1, 2021.
