Enhancing Diversity in the Environmental Profession – 2022 Student Scholarship

Aspen Environmental Group supports students who are actively engaged in the pursuit of a career in a field with an environmental emphasis. As part of our support efforts, we are offering scholarships to support college students interested in environmentally related topics, with a focus on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) recipients. Aspen’s scholarship is intended to promote and encourage BIPOC voices within our profession.
