Jim Anderson Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by New York Water Environment Association

Value: $1,250
Awards Available: 1

Jim Anderson was a Senior Vice President and the Director of Technology at Metcalf & Eddy | AECOM. In these roles, Jim was responsible for M&E’s research program and for the continued development of M&E’s textbooks, including the recently published Water Reuse book. The publication ENR described Jim as "an engineer’s engineer" and "one of the world’s acknowledged leaders in water and wastewater treatment plant engineering."

Jim was a strong advocate for training and mentoring young environmental engineers, consistent with M&E’s commitment to meaningfully contribute to the development of engineering professionals as envisioned by Leonard Metcalf and Harrison P. Eddy over 100 years ago. He conceived of Metcalf and Eddy’s annual Student Design Competition, which challenges university students to tackle real-life design problems from the consulting world. 

Throughout his career, Jim was an active participant in career fairs and mock interview nights at his alma mater, The Cooper Union. He also developed close working relationships with universities and established successful research collaborations with many of them.

Jim died early in 2006 after battling cancer, but his legacy of mentorship and forward-thinking engineering continues to live on in the New York engineering community.

The Jim Anderson Memorial Scholarship will offer one $1,250 scholarship annually to students attending school in the NYC Metropolitan area.
