Two University of Wyoming students were informed they had received scholarship awards for their work in environmental engineering.
Ming Li and Seyed Shahabadi Mahdi, graduate students studying under Associate Professor of Civil and Architectural Engineering Jon Brant, each were selected to receive scholarship funding from national organizations.
Mahdi earned recognition from the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) via a fund to provide financial support to students involved in membrane research. According to the award letter, Mahdi’s application was among a number of highly qualified submissions and was carefully reviewed by a group of industry professionals recognized as experts in the field of membrane and process technology.
He was selected to receive a fellowship in the amount of $2,500. As a condition of accepting the award, Mahdi agreed to attend the 2018 Membrane Technology Conference (MTC) to be hosted in West Palm Beach, Fla., on March 12-16, 2018, and personally present his work in either a paper or poster session. The award monies are intended to support his research and to provide financial assistance for travel expenses related to his conference attendance. 
Li will receive the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works Association (RMSAWWA) James B. Warner Scholarship. He will receive the $2,000 award and an invitation to attend the year’s RMSAWWA annual conference in Loveland, Colo., and be a guest at the RMSAWWA Business Luncheon on Sept. 11.
In the award letter, Li was praised for his work by the committee.
“Your credentials are exceptional, and we know that you will put this money to great benefit as you pursue your doctorate degree at the University of Wyoming,” it states.
