Each year, the Society provides scholarships for collegiate candidates with studies focused in the environmental science, engineering, or aw arenas. In 2017, CEMS is pleased to announce we were able to award two scholarships of $3000 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:

· Kevin Olson, Junior, Petroleum Engineering, Colorado School of Mines

· Yalin Li, second year Ph.D. program, Bachelor of Engineering and a Master of Science, both in Environmental Engineering, Colorado School of Mines

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.
