The Partnership is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2014-2015 Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program. As you may know, the program was initiated to support students pursuing education in brownfield-related fields and was named in honor of Abbey Duncan, an avid environmentalist, talented dancer, and tireless community supporter. The 2014-2015 Scholarships will be one-time awards of up to $2000. Scholarship recipients are selected on a competitive basis and the Program is open to students who meet the following requirements:
• An undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at one of the colleges affiliated with CUNY and other select colleges in the New York City Metro area;
• Enrolled in at least one course during the 2014-2015 academic year; and,
• Pursuing studies related to brownfield redevelopment, such as environmental engineering, environmental or geosciences, geology or hydrogeology, environmental policy, environmental planning, environmental justice, environmental law, real estate, sustainable development or industrial hygiene.
|The Partnership would like to thank our members, whose contributions support our scholarship program, and encourage those of you who are not members to consider joining the Partnership to help support this much-needed effort.|
