DEI Scholarship Program
In 2021, The Northwest Association of Environmental Professionals proudly launched a DEI Scholarship program, aimed at supporting diversity in the environmental professions.
Through this program, NWAEP awards annual scholarships of up to $2,000 to undergraduate or graduate students from a diverse background in Oregon or Washington state, whose major field of study is relevant to environmental science/STEM.
NWAEP's DEI Scholarship aims to support the professional development of students who are underrepresented (i.e. BIPOC, women, minorities) in environmental careers by covering one year of NWAEP membership fees and participation expenses (registration, travel, room and board) for the National Association of Environmental Professionals' annual conference, held in May, 2024 in Minneapolis.
Applications for DEI Scholarship are now closed; 2024 recipient(s) will be announced shortly.
Past DEI Scholarship Recipients:
2023: Tai-Renée King and Lena Wang
2022: Janelle Layton and Daria Singer
