Each year, the Society provides scholarships for Colorado collegiate candidates with studies focused in the environmental science, engineering, or law arenas. In 2019, CEMS is pleased to announce we were able to award three scholarships of $3,000 each to deserving students!

The annual scholarship coordination, including development and distribution of the scholarship application, is led by the Scholarship Committee.  The applications are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and recommendations on scholarship awards are presented to the Board for approval in May. 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:

  • Melissa Breathwaite, Colorado School of Mines, B.S. Environmental Engineering – MBreathwaite Essay
  • Daniel Franz, University of Colorado Law School, Boulder – DFranz Essay
  • Scott Yanco, University of Colorado, Denver, PhD in Integrative and Systems Biology  – SYanco Essay
