Many of the environmental leaders of tomorrow are currently students in colleges throughout the city. Investing in today's students is necessary to ensure an adequate supply of new environmental professionals to fill management and leadership roles which will help New York City to achieve its long-term brownfield cleanup goals.
The NYC Brownfield Partnership offers a NYC Brownfield Scholarship Program to promote the training and development of future environmental professionals in New York City. These scholarships provide valuable assistance to students in their efforts to pay for the costs of tuition for undergraduate and graduate education.
CUNY students with a demonstrated academic interest in brownfield cleanup and brownfield management can apply for these scholarships, which are administered by Invest in CUNY. Scholarship recipients will be selected on a competitive basis by the Partnership's Board of Directors. Member organizations in the Partnership support the NYC Brownfield Scholarship Program by making voluntary contributions. The NYC Brownfield Partnership is not an agency of the City. The decisions of the Partnership are made by its board of directors and not by the City.
Applications for this program are now available and can be found in the Applications toolbar on the Partnership website at www.brownfieldnyc.org. If you want more information, email the NYC Brownfield Partnership at email@example.com.
