CSU Scholarship

The CEHA Scholarship Endowment was created in 1986 by a $5,000 gift to the Colorado State University Foundation. A scholarship is awarded annually as funds permit to a CSU student working to gain further expertise in the Environmental Health Profession. A Scholarship and awards committee selects the successful candidate from the pool of applicants. Selection is based on student’s good standing in the Environmental Health program; participation in student, state, or national Environmental Health organizations; and financial need. Applicants must be an undergraduate Junior or Senior, or a graduate student.

Contact CSU Environmental Health Program Director for more application information.

State Science Fair Scholarship

Since 2003, CEHA has awarded one Junior Division and one Senior Division science fair participant with an outstanding science project in the field of Environmental Health Science, exemplifying the core values of the Association, at the Annual Colorado Science and Engineering Fair. The award, along with a scholarship check for $75, is presented to the outstanding Junior Division winner and a check for $150 is presented to the outstanding Senior Division winner. Also, the Senior Division winner receives an all expenses paid invitation to the Annual Educational Conference to exhibit their project.

No application is necessary for this scholarship; the scholarship committee evaluates all environmental health science-related entries at the Annual Colorado Science and Engineering Fair and makes its determination.
