The North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) — the leading association serving and promoting the North American trenchless industry – is pleased to announce municipal and public utility scholarship opportunities to attend NASTT’s 2019 No-Dig Show, March 17-21 in Chicago, Illinois.
Deadline for application is Nov. 1. Follow this link to the application page.
In 2013, NASTT established the No-Dig Show Municipal & Public Utility Scholarship Award Program to provide education and training for employees of North American municipalities, government agencies and utility owners who have limited or no training funds due to economic challenges. In past years, more than 100 applicants were awarded the scholarship annually.
“NASTT’s Municipal & Public Utility Scholarships have gone to over 750 people since the inception of the scholarship program, and it’s building momentum even still,” said Cindy Preuss, 2019 No-Dig Show program chair and principal with HydroScience Engineers. “With an entire show dedicated to trenchless technology, this scholarship offers public agencies the opportunity to participate, and experience, the world of trenchless. It’s an opportunity perhaps entirely missed were it not for the award directly impacting an agency’s bottom line. Submit your application today – this is a chance that public agency representatives shouldn’t pass up!”
Selected scholarship winners will be awarded Full Conference and Exhibition registration to NASTT’s 2019 No-Dig Show. Also available are one day conference registrations which include full access to all exhibits and technical paper sessions. Selected applicants will also be eligible to receive complimentary overnight accommodations for three nights at the host hotel. The scholarship applications are reviewed by a committee of NASTT volunteers and awarded based upon the supplied responses.
To apply for the scholarship, complete the application online at nastt.org/no-dig-show/municipal-scholarships on or before Nov. 1. Applicants are not required to be NASTT members.
NASTT’s Municipal & Public Utility Scholarships program is sponsored by Benjamin Media, Inc, award-winning publisher of the leading underground construction magazine, Trenchless Technology.
