The Academy recognizes the impact that COVID has had on all of us, our families, our jobs, and professional development. Many Academy members have faced significant problems in satisfying PDH requirements for both the Academy and professional licensing. For this reason, the Academy will reduce the PDH requirement for 2020 from the normal 40 hours over a two year period to 20 hours over a two year period. This will apply only to renewal for 2021.
Our non-profit partner, the Environmental Engineering and Science Foundation, is offering six scholarships to students majoring in Environmental Engineering and Environmental Science. One of the biggest challenges is making students aware of the availability of financial assistance. Each of us knows a professor or can contact a financial aid office at our alma mater or a local university or community college. You may even know a deserving student! Please take a minute to make contact with a colleague who could direct students to this scholarship program.
The best source of information is the EESF website: https://www.eesfoundation.org/scholarship/.
