The CSAP Society is supporting the next generation of Contaminated Site Approved Professionals by offering up to two $5,000 scholarships and one $7,000 scholarship to applied science and engineering graduate students whose research is relevant to the assessment and remediation of contaminated sites. Applicants must be engaged in a natural or applied science program leading to a post graduate project or thesis and must have a clearly defined research project and demonstrate the relevance of the research to the investigation and remediation of contaminated sites. Research project must be in British Columbia.

Applicants must also demonstrate exceptional promise, academic excellence, leadership and a strong commitment to contaminated sites research. For more information on land remediation, applicants are directed to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, Land Remediation website.

The Selection Committee will be guided by the following considerations:

  • Academic Record
  • Leadership Skills
  • Potential Benefit of the research to the process of contaminated sites
  • References (including a reference from your academic supervisor).

One of CSAP’s scholarships is the Mike Macfarlane Memorial Scholarship which will be awarded to the applicant that shows innovation and forward-thinking. This special scholarship in Mike’s name recognizes these attributes, which he exemplified in his years of leadership at the Land Remediation Section of BC’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.

The scholarship deadline for 2023 has now closed. Please check back in late 2023 for 2024 details.
