2024 Chapter Scholarship Information

The SWANA Mid-Atlantic Chapter is a believer in supporting the higher education goals of today’s youth. The Chapter offers college scholarships to eligible students working toward undergraduate or graduate college degrees. In addition, the Chapter will submit the application of the most-qualified, eligible candidate for the Grant H. Flint Scholarship Awards Program administered by SWANA International.

Initiated by the Mid-Atlantic Chapter through its Chapter Scholarship Committee, the Scholarship Awards promote education and professional development. The scholarship program is in its 4th decade. The committee is responsible for reviewing and selecting local (Mid-Atlantic: MD, DC, and DE) winners.

SWANA members are requested to disseminate this information to others who are not SWANA members, but who work in the solid waste field, e.g., others in your agency (whether office or field personnel), collection contractors, facility contractors, solid waste vendors, associates in other agencies. A sponsoring member or the applicant member shall be in good standing at the time of application, selection, and the award.
