Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program
Named in honor of an avid environmentalist, talented dancer, and tireless community supporter, the Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is an annual program designed to provide financial support to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in the brownfield industry in New York City. Brownfields are properties where redevelopment is complicated by the presence or potential presence of environmental contamination. The Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is administered by the NYC Brownfield Partnership, an association of member organizations involved in the brownfield industry in New York City.
2013-2014 Scholarships will be one-time awards of up to $2000. Funds will be disbursed directly to the college at which the student is enrolled in coordination with the school’s financial aid office.
Scholarship recipients will be selected on a competitive basis. In order to be eligible for the award, students must be:
- An undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at one of the colleges affiliated with CUNY;
- Enrolled in at least one course during the 2013-2014 academic year; and
- Pursuing studies related to brownfield redevelopment, such as environmental engineering, environmental or geosciences, geology or hydrogeology, environmental policy, environmental planning, environmental justice, environmental law, real estate, sustainable development or industrial hygiene.
- Submit the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org using the “Submit Form” button at the end of the application.
Please ensure that your resume and transcript(s) are attached using the buttons found on page 3 of the application.
- Provide the recommendation form to two (2) recommenders and instruct them to submit the form by following the directions on the form.
One recommendation should be from a faculty member at your current academic institution; the second recommender should be someone who can attest to your work/ interest in brownfields and environmental issues (e.g. employer,
volunteer organization supervisor, additional professor, etc).
All application materials must be received by February 15, 2013.
