Purdue University was recently selected to receive one of three $1,000 scholarships from the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners) to award to a student of their choosing. Megan Townsend, a junior in Environmental and Ecological Engineering, was the chosen recipient of the Partners scholarship.

Partners started a scholarship fund in honor of the “20 years of Pollution Prevention in Indiana” that was celebrated at this year’s conference. Three schools were chosen to receive the scholarships: Purdue University, Ball State University, and Indiana University. Each school selected a student to receive the scholarship based on the following criteria:

• an undergraduate student at one of these three schools

• an Indiana resident

• interested in pursuing industrial sustainability and/or pollution prevention in industry
