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 the NASTT 2021 No-Dig Show, March 28 - April 1 in Orlando, Florida.
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, over 100 applicants were awarded the scholarship annually.
“The NASTT Municipal & Public Utility Scholarship offers public utilities and owners the unique opportunity to participate in the NASTT No-Dig Show. Since the inception of the scholarship program in 2013, more than 850 applicants have been given awards, and the program continues to grow each year.” said Dr. John Matthews, 2021 No-Dig Show Program Chair and Director of the Trenchless Technology Center (TTC).
“This scholarship offers utility employees the chance to attend the No-Dig Show, which is dedicated to trenchless technology, at very little cost to them and their agencies.”
Selected scholarship winners will be awarded Full Conference and Exhibition registration to the NASTT 2021 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 November 1, 2020. Applicants are not required to be NASTT members.
