Scholarships

In an effort to promote education and professional development to SWANA members and their families, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has established the Grant H. Flint Scholarship Awards Program. Scholarships/Grants are available at the local SWANA level for all award Categories and at the national SWANA level for Categories I, II and III. In addition, to the Scholarship/Grants at the local level and the national level the SWANA New York Chapter is expanding funding for the scholarship program to include private company sponsorship.

Applications will be accepted until May 1, 2018 and award(s) will be announced by June 1, 2018. Candidates selected for awards will be contacted directly by the Scholarship Committee, and the award(s) will be announced in a future SWANA newsletter.

Awards are determined based on a review of the SWANA New York Chapter Scholarship Committee. Awards are based on the overall achievements of the individual candidate, and not solely on academic performance. Awards are offered in the following four categories:
