Waste Management Scholarships

Here are some of the Waste Management scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.

Dave Benferado Scholarship

Each year, the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) recognizes outstanding students who are pursuing courses of study and research leading to careers in air quality, waste management, environmental management / policy / law, and sustainability. Eligibility Individuals must be full-time graduate students pursuing courses of study and research leading to careers in air quality, waste management, environmental management/policy/law, and/or sustainability during the academic year. Membership is not a requirement for the student or their advisor; however, it is strongly encouraged. The Scholarship is a one-year award. Individuals must reapply to qualify for a second year.

Recycling Research Foundation National Scholarship

The Recycling Research Foundation (RRF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization closely associated with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI). The foundation’s mission is to “promote the art and science of scrap processing and recycling through research, sponsorships, technical assistance, and educational programs for the purpose of advancing the industry.” Recognizing the need for affordable graduate education, the foundation has decided to create a $5,000 national scholarship open to individuals seeking a graduate degree in a program that supports the scrap processing and recycling industry as a whole. The industry itself is both labor and mechanically intensive as scrap processors take old and new metals, paper, rubber, plastic, glass, and more, and sort it into established grades which are highly sought after by manufacturers as a readily available feedstock. To begin to understand the challenges, ask yourself a few questions: How would you separate paper from glass? How about aluminum from copper, or lead, or iron and steel? It is perhaps easy to do this at the level of a few hundred pounds, but every year the industry must process in excess of 200 billion pounds of material. The challenges of recycling at this scale have given rise to new and innovative technologies as the recycling industry adapts to an ever changing marketplace of goods.

Air and Waste Management Scholarship Program

Eligibility Individuals must be full-time graduate students pursuing courses of study and research leading to careers in air quality, waste management, environmental management/policy/law, and/or sustainability during the next academic year.
