$1000 Scholarship Available Through Western Chapter-International Erosion Control Association - Apply by July 1

For 2014-15, the Western Chapter-International Erosion Control Association (WC-IECA) is offering one scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for junior, senior, or graduate school level students with a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in the erosion and sediment control profession AND who are enrolled in a related degree-program at an accredited 4-year college or university.

Since erosion and sediment control is a cross-disciplinary field, a wide variety of degree-programs will be considered, e.g., engineering, hydrology, soils, geology, forestry, environmental studies, range management, watershed, ecology, natural resources planning, etc. Students must be enrolled in institutions within the four-state area of the WCIECA, i.e., CA, AZ, NV, or HI.

Applicants must submit a 500-word essay, three letters of recommendation, and post-secondary academic transcripts (unofficial transcripts okay) along with the application.

Applications are due on July 1 of each year preceding the fall academic year to which the scholarship will be used. Awardees will be notified by August 15.

Interested students may download applications from the Western Chapter IECA website or contact Cyndi Brinkhurst at westernchapter [at] gmail [dot] com.
