EPOC Environmental Scholarship Fund

The Environmental Professionals' Organization of Connecticut (EPOC) recognizes its duty to assist in the education of individuals planning a career in the environmental industry. Consequently, the EPOC Environmental Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 to assist Connecticut residents who are attending a college or university (CT colleges or out of state colleges) and have declared majors pertinent to the environmental field. The scholarships are awarded annually to junior, senior, and graduate level students (full or part time) enrolled in accepted programs of study (see below) preparing the student to become a Technical Environmental Professional* in the State of Connecticut as defined by the CT DEP, or a professional in a related service discipline who may render technical assistance to the Technical Environmental Professional.



*As defined by the CT DEP, a Technical Environmental Professional (TEP) is anyone, including a Licensed Environmental Professional, who collects soil, water, vapor, or air samples in order to investigate and remediate pollution to the state's soil or water, and who may be directly employed or retained as a consultant by a public or private employer.
