Each year, the Society provides three scholarships for collegiate candidates with
studies focused in the environmental science, engineering, or law arenas. In 2016, CEMS is pleased to announce we were able to award three scholarships of $2,000 each to deserving students!

The annual scholarship coordination, including development and distribution of the scholarship
application, is led by the Scholarship Committee. Typically, the annual scholarship
application is distributed in late November and applications are due in February/March of the
following year. The applications are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and
recommendations on scholarship awards are presented to the Board for approval in
February. A notice of the scholarship awards are made to the recipients and
presented in the monthly newsletter for notice to the members.

CEMS received many applications for scholarships this year. We are pleased to offer scholarships to each of the following students:

· Andrew R. Pfluger, PhD candidate, Environmental Engineering and Science, CO School of Mines
· Katherine Anne McQuie, first year undergraduate, Environmental Engineering and Chemical Engineering; minor in Energy Engineering CU Boulder
· Lucy Cheadle, first year graduate school, Chemical Engineering/Environmental Engineering/M.S. Environmental Engineering, CU Boulder

The links below are each winner’s application essays. Winners will be at upcoming CEMS luncheons to receive their checks.

Students are required to be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a Colorado university or college. Students must be studying engineering, geology, environmental sciences, law, or another field in which they may address environmental issues, and must intend to work in an environmental field.
