For each of the past 30 years, the Wisconsin Environmental Health Association has given a scholarship to a student in the field of environmental health. WEHA believes one method to improve the field of environmental and public health is to invest in the future professionals. To strengthen the field of environmental and public health and to further expand the association’s support for education activities, an additional scholarship was created in 1999. WEHA feels very strongly about the scholarship program and has established an endowment fund in order to perpetuate it.
