Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program

Named in honor of an avid environmentalist, talented dancer, and tireless community supporter, the Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is an annual program designed to provide financial support to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in the brownfield industry in New York City.  Brownfields are properties where redevelopment is complicated by the presence or potential presence of environmental contamination. The Abbey Duncan Brownfield Scholarship Program is administered by the NYC Brownfield Partnership, an association of member organizations involved in the brownfield industry in New York City.

2016-2017 Scholarships will be one-time awards of up to $2,000.  Funds will be disbursed directly to the college at which the student is enrolled in coordination with the school’s financial aid office.

Scholarship recipients will be selected on a competitive basis.  In order to be eligible for the award, students must be:

  • An undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at one of the colleges affiliated with CUNY and other select colleges in the New York City Metro area;
  • Enrolled in at least one course during the 2016-2017 academic year; and
  • Pursuing studies related to brownfield redevelopment, such as environmental engineering, environmental or geosciences, geology or hydrogeology, environmental policy, environmental planning, environmental justice, environmental law, real estate, sustainable development or industrial hygiene.
