ASFPM Foundation Future Leaders Scholarship 

The ASFPM Foundation Future Leaders Scholarship is awarded every other year to a deserving college student entering their junior year of undergraduate studies or the last two years of a 5-year or dual degree undergraduate program. The Future Leaders Scholarship is intended to advance flood risk management research and practice. The ASFPM Foundation has established eligibility criteria, and along with a demonstration of financial need, the student must be pursuing a course of study related to the missions of the ASFPM and ASFPM Foundation. Also, after graduation the student must plan to work in a profession that directly, or indirectly, supports the field of flood risk management.

Purpose of the ASFPM Foundation Future Leaders Scholarship: The scholarship is envisioned as an additional means for the ASFPM Foundation to advance flood-risk management research and practice. It will be awarded to a deserving college student who plans to work after graduation in a profession that directly, or indirectly, supports the field of flood risk management. The selected scholar will receive direct financial assistance, mentoring and support finding a paid summer internship in a relevant professional setting.

Duration of Scholarship: The scholarship is awarded for up to a two-year duration and will be awarded to a rising junior in a 4-year undergraduate degree program or a student entering the last two years of a 5-year or dual degree undergraduate program.

Amount of Scholarship and What It Covers: The scholarship will be in the amount of up to $25,000 per year for two years. Up to $25,000 per year will be paid directly to the scholarship recipient’s college or university for tuition. Funds remaining after tuition payment may be used for other educational expenses, room and board in a college dormitory, or an equivalent stipend if living off campus. 

Next application round is anticipated to open in late 2019 that would award a scholarship for the 2020-2021 & 2021-2022 academic years.
