For 24 years, NEHA and the American Academy of Sanitarians (AAS) have partnered to offer scholarships to deserving environmental health students. The purpose of the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Program is to encourage students to make an early commitment to a career in environmental health and to inspire graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in environmental health sciences. Three scholarships were awarded this year. Meet the 2020 scholarship awardees at www.neha.org/membership-communities/getinvolved/day-in-life/meet-2020-student-scholarship- awardees.
