The purpose of the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Program is to encourage students to indulge in an early commitment to a career in environmental health as well as to inspire past and present graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in environmental health sciences. This program offers financial assistance to individuals with an evident need and serves to introduce adequately trained professionals into the environmental health workforce. In previous years, students who demonstrated the highest levels of achievement in their respective environmental health degree programs were awarded $5,000 directly from this fund. Your donation empowers NEHA and AAS to continuously award this scholarship to exceptional students who have a passion for environmental health and supports the next generation of environmental health professionals. 




The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) Endowment Foundation was established years ago to enable NEHA to do more for the environmental health community than its annual budget might allow. NEHA was founded in 1937 upon the belief that professionals who were both educated and motivated would make the greatest strides in creating healthful environments and search for the finest solutions. The donations received for this fund are invested with the intent that it will continue to grow, ensuring that these funds will one day be used to enhance and empower the environmental health profession, in turn, amplifying your contributions. Continue learning more about the Endowment Fund.




Supporting us in our mission to advance the environmental health professional for the purpose of providing a healthful environment for all is a collaborative effort. Join us in propelling this mission with a gift today. Choose which way you’d like to give back to the National Environmental Health Association.
