LSRPA Awards 2018 Elmeryl Davies Memorial Scholarships

In January 2019, the Licensed Site Remediation Professional Association (LSPRA) announced the recipients of an Elmeryl Davies Memorial Scholarship for 2018. This is the fourth year the LSRPA has awarded the $2,000 scholarships, which are named after the late wife of Julian Davies, a founding member of the LSRPA.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must be in their junior or senior year of a four-year accredited geoscience or engineering program and interested in pursuing a career in the environmental field. The applicants were evaluated based on their academic achievements, their work experience and involvement in other activities, academic and professional references, and a statement of their career goals.
