NEHA's Giving Tuesday Campaign: Supporting the NEHA/AAS Scholarship
A global generosity movement. Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
"Imagine a world rooted in radical generosity that leaves room at the table for everyone to give … and to receive. Giving Tuesday is a space to collectively imagine that world. What could be possible if we determine to make it a reality together?"
- Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s Co-Founder and CEO
Our 2021 Giving Tuesday Goal
This year, NEHA will be participating in its first Giving Tuesday campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 toward our NEHA/AAS Scholarship Fund on November 30, 2021. By participating in Giving Tuesday, we hope to encourage you to think about the future of environmental health.
How Our Giving Tuesday Campaign Will Help Students
By participating in Giving Tuesday, we are encouraging you to think about the future of environmental health. Each year we award a total of $7,000 to two undergraduate and one graduate student through the NEHA/AAS Scholarship program. With your help, we can do more! Help us build our scholarship fund for the opportunity to either increase our scholarship amounts or to support more students every year.
So, what does the NEHA/AAS Scholarship go towards?
Following the students' notice of the award, the scholarship is forwarded directly to the recipients financial aid office and applied to their student dues. Student dues include tuition, room and board, and a number of miscellaneous student fees. In context, the scholarship will help eleviate the student's debt for one realm of expenses, allowing their savings to go toward expenses like books, supplies, groceries, etc.
Although the average student's cost of a degree from a 4-year college is breaching $100,000 (cost of tution plus additional expenses across 4 years) and the NEHA/AAS Scholarship is a small fraction of this, this award still means a lot to students. The students who receive this award are deserving, dedicated, hard-working students that juggle full time classwork and part-time jobs to help pay their way toward becoming an environmental professional.
By donating to the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Fund, you are inspiring students and supporting them during their journey toward making the world a better place. If we can grow the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Fund, we can do more for more students.
