Scholarship Deadline

Sharps Compliance’s deadline for its Fall Scholarship Contest is fast approaching! Students studying healthcare at an accredited college or university have until Friday, May 31 to submit their essays and applications.

This semester’s essay topic is below:

Topic: Waste-to-Energy

In the past 50 years, waste has tripled, and waste per person has doubled. The EPA has stated that Energy from Waste is one of the cleanest sources of electrical power. Currently, Waste-to-Energy (WTE) and Municipal Waste Combustion (MSW) in the U.S. account for approximately 20% of renewable electricity generation. Please describe in detail how Sharps Compliance partnering with healthcare organizations can increase the amount of clean renewable energy generated. What types of medical waste and what other benefits to the environment or society could be affected?

Sharps will announce the winners on Friday, June 14. More information about the contest can be found here. An application must accompany each essay.
