Yixing Shao awarded Air and Waste Management Association scholarship
Yixing Shao, advised by Jeff Collett, has been awarded the Rocky Mountain States Section of Air and Waste Management Association graduate scholarship. The scholarship provides recognition and a financial award for graduate students to encourage careers related to air pollution control and/or waste management.
“The scholarship means a lot to me,” Yixing said in response to the announcement. “It encourages me to pursue air quality-related studies, especially my current research on measurements of reactive nitrogen species and nitrogen deposition in national parks.”
Along with the scholarship, the RMSS-A&WMA offered to cover the cost of one year of Yixing’s student membership to the international A&WMA organization. Membership includes a subscription to the monthly A&WMA periodical and a job/resume posting website.
