As the Chair of the Education Committee of the Mid Atlantic Region Environmental Professionals (MAREP - http://www.marepweb.org), it is my pleasure to inform you that we are now accepting applications for our student scholarship.  The scholarship consists of one (1) award of $2,500.00 for the academic year of 2013-2014. 

This scholarship was established by MAREP to promote and support the training of current or future Environmental Professionals in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia.  MAREP was established in 2009 by a group of Environmental Professionals who sought to provide opportunities for professional development and awareness.

The scholarship is meant to support a student who is pursuing a degree within an environmental field and who has demonstrated a commitment to a career related to the environment. MAREP advocates the pursuit of knowledge in an ever-expanding field and wishes to assist students who are pursuing/advancing a career as an Environmental Professional.

The recipient of the scholarship will be selected in the end of the summer of 2013, and the $2,500 award will be available for the 2013-2014 academic year.


  • The recipient will be an undergraduate or graduate student interested in a career within an environmental field.  Eligible students shall submit an application, which includes an essay, transcript and two letters of recommendation.  Through the application process, students should provide evidence of sincere interest in attaining/advancing a career within the environmental field.
  • Undergraduate recipients must be at least a second year student as defined by their respective institute of higher learning.  Students must attend schools and/or be residents of Maryland, the District of Columbia, or Virginia.
  • The recipient must attend one MAREP general meeting, special event, or annual conference where they will be formally recognized for their accomplishments.  Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of most months in Northern Virginia and Maryland, respectively.  A free meeting ticket, which includes a meal, will be provided to the scholarship recipient.  Special events are posted at MAREP's website.  The annual conference date varies, and will be available at our website when the meeting is finalized.
