For the ninth consecutive year, the Air & Waste Management Association Lake Michigan States Section (A&WMA-LMSS) will again be awarding a graduate student scholarship in memory of Mr. Stephen H. Rothblatt.  Mr. Rothblatt was a longtime supporter and contributor to the A&WMA-LMSS, including serving as Chairman of the Board from 1987-1988.  In his professional capacity, Mr. Rothblatt was the Director of the Air and Radiation Division at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, in Chicago, Illinois.

This year, A&WMA-LMSS will be awarding one scholarship for the 2019/2020 academic year to a graduate student studying in the field of environmental studies at an institution of higher learning located within the service region of the A&WMA-LMSS.  The scholarship will be valued at $1,500.00.  This could include students studying in the department of environmental engineering, environmental science, meteorology, geology, etc.  The goal of the scholarship is to ensure adequate human resources and to improve knowledge and skills in the fields of air and waste management.  We are currently seeking applicants for this scholarship.

Please share this scholarship opportunity with your environmental graduate students.  Application information is attached or can be found on our website at https://lmawma.org/rothblatt-application-information/

SAGE Applications Sought for 2019-2020

The Graduate College is now accepting applications from graduate students to serve on our student advisory board, SAGE (Students Advising on Graduate Education), during academic year 2019-2020. Student input is extremely important to us, as is having an advisory board that represents the breadth of our programs and diversity of our students.

Please share the following information with graduate students in your unit and encourage them to apply.

The Graduate College seeks applications from graduate students to serve on SAGE (Students Advising on Graduate Education) for the 2019-2020 academic year.

SAGE is a student advisory board and leadership opportunity for graduate students that fosters active engagement with the Graduate College. SAGE board members enrich graduate student community, build leadership skills, and strengthen Graduate College services and programs. They also contribute to the graduate student community at Illinois by providing varied perspectives that enhance the academic, professional, and social experiences of graduate students.

SAGE members are required to participate in monthly meetings during the fall and spring semesters and have the option to participate in focused project groups. The estimated time commitment is about 3 hours per month.

Students interested in SAGE should be graduate students during the 2019-2020 academic year enrolled in on-campus or online graduate degree programs and be in good academic standing.

Applications are available online and must be received by Monday, April 1, 2019 (11:59 p.m.).

Please visit our website for information about SAGE activities and to access the online application form: https://grad.illinois.edu/committees/sage

If you have questions, please contact the Graduate College at grad@illinois.edu.
