Every year there is an opportunity for RCRA Young Professional Members, currently enrolled in a college or university, to submit a Scholarship Application to work during the Annual National Conference – which will be held this year at Sunriver Resort in Bend, Oregon. We do this in order to help defray the cost of student conference fees. This year, the Scholarship Committee is offering a revitalized scholarship opportunity that we believe students will find very exciting.
Each selected scholarship winner will be expected to assist for approximately ten hours during the conference. The assignments vary from assisting with the social committee, selling raffle tickets and decorating for events, to introducing guest speakers. Students will also be assigned a board member as a mentor during the conference. This board member will provide the student with information regarding the conference, properties that he or she may be interested in, and so much more. We truly believe this will give students an opportunity to better understand all aspects of the association, as well as learn from some of the best leaders in our industry.
In recognition of student service, each scholarship winner will receive a certificate of appreciation and a fully waived $175 conference registration fee. To be considered, the student must be a current RCRA member.
