The goal of the scholarship program is to promote the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) disciplines and to benefit our membership. Every year NEACHMM will award at least one $1,000 scholarship to an applicant meeting the qualifying criteria. An applicant does not need to meet both qualifying criteria to apply. However, applicants meeting both qualifying criteria will score higher on qualifying criteria than those meeting only one.

Completed applications and required documentation must be submitted by the deadline. Winning recipients will be notified within 1 month of the application deadline. Scholarships will be awarded within 2 months of the application deadline.

Scholarship recipients from the previous year are not eligible in consecutive years. All prospective applicants must provide a copy of registration for the upcoming semester for current students or a letter of acceptance for prospective students.
