“This scholarship has tremendously supported me in numerous ways. The financial support definitely eased my graduate school tuition costs. More importantly, I was encouraged by many professionals at the award luncheon, which motivated me to continue my education, research and career in this field. This prestigious scholarship also inspired me to switch from my master to doctoral program. I am proud to list this scholar on my CV as one of my achievements which I believe has brought me other fellowships, scholarships and awards as well as my current position as environmental engineering faculty at CSU, Long Beach.” – Pitiporn Asvapathanagul, Ph.D., 2009 Recipient
