Manchester receives $1,000 from Air & Waste Management Association for scholarships
Manchester University has received $1,000 in scholarships from the Indiana Air & Waste Management Association in recognition of the University’s research and high-quality students of environmental studies. Two students will receive the scholarships this fall, said Jerry Sweeten, director of environmental studies and associate professor of biology.
“Our students demonstrate a strong work ethic with rigorous academics,” said Sweeten, whose research and grant-writing inspired the multi-million-dollar Middle Eel River Watershed Initiative of more than a dozen state and area agencies.
Manchester is one of four Indiana schools to receive the scholarship funds from the Indiana Air & Waste Management Association.
The international Air & Waste Management Association is a nonpartisan environmental forum for information exchange, professional development, networking, public education and outreach to environmental students and professionals.
