National Environmental Health Association and American Association of Sanitarians Scholarship Opportunity

The purpose of the NEHA/AAS Scholarship program is to encourage early commitment by students to a career in EH and to stimulate past and present graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in EH sciences. The program offers financial assistance to individuals with a demonstrable need, and serves to introduce adequately trained professionals into the EH workforce.


Undergraduate– The undergraduate scholarships are available to students who are enrolled in an approved four-year college or university that is either accredited by the Environmental Health Accreditation Council (EHAC) or is a NEHA Educational or Sustaining Member School (Environmental Health Accreditation Council accredited colleges/universities and NEHA Educational and Sustaining Member Schools are listed on the back of this brochure).
