SWANA Scholarship applications

February 08, 2019 12:47 PM | Philip Westmoreland (Administrator)

I’m pleased to send to you SWANA’s applications for the Grant H. Flint Scholarship Awards Program and the Robert P. Stearns/SCS Engineers Scholarship.    SWANA typically distributes $20,000 to $25,000 a year in four to five scholarships through this effort.   Our candidates come from those nominated by the Chapters, as well as from students in At Large areas who submit applications to me directly.   Please use these in your Chapter recruitment for scholarship applicants  – posting them on your websites and sending them on to your members and contacts at schools and universities.   We hope many of the chapters will again provide preferred candidates for the:


  • 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.
  • Category II 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.  
  • Robert P. Stearns/SCS Engineers Scholarship – graduate student studying environmental science, engineering or other field related to solid waste management.


The applications for each can be found on the SWANA website at: https://swana.org/Awards/ScholarshipsInternships.aspx.   Note that the essay question has been changed in response to requests from chapter representatives. 


The deadline for applications to the chapters is May 1, 2019.  The deadline for sending details about Chapter winners/one nominee for each scholarship on for consideration by the International Scholarship Committee is June 1, 2019.    Please direct all Chapter applications and your questions to  sbixby@swana.org or call 240-494-2236.
