LSP Association Scholarship Fund

The LSP Association Scholarship Fund provides annual educational scholarships for qualified applicants. These scholarships are available to LSP Association members and members of their immediate families enrolled in a degree program at an accredited New England college or university, and/or to qualified Massachusetts residents who are enrolled in a public or private Massachusetts college or university pursuing a major that is consistent with becoming an LSP or Environmental Professional.

The specific purpose of the scholarship program is to support continued education in environmental fields in the Massachusetts and New England region. While the number and amount of the scholarships vary each year, the objective is to provide two $5,000 scholarships each year to qualified individuals.

The application deadline for 2017-2018 academic year scholarships is April 14, 2017. If you or a member of your family are interested in applying for a scholarship, or if you know of someone who may be interested, download detailed information and application forms from these links:

2017-2018 Scholarship Application

The LSP Association Scholarship Fund was incorporated in 2006 as a 501(c) (3) charitable organization. The Fund is a separate corporation from the LSPA, but both organizations share the goal of advancing the field of hazardous waste site cleanup in Massachusetts.  

In addition to individuals who make contributions (which are tax-deductible), fees and contributions from several LSPA sources are directed to the Scholarship Fund; these include fees from the Peer Review program and proceeds from the Silent Auction at the Annual Dinner. In addition, LSPA course instructors often donate their stipends to the Fund.

We encourage you to support the LSP Association Scholarship Fund.
Remember, your contributions are tax deductible.

 

Since 2003, the Fund has awarded 24 scholarships totaling more than $110,000.
