Recycling Education & Research Foundation Scholarship

The Recycling Education and Research Foundation (RERF), formerly known as Recycling Research Foundation, (RRF),  is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization closely associated with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI). Our mission is to “sponsor projects which promote public awareness, education, research, and the advancement of recycling.”

Since 2010, RRF has sponsored a graduate scholarship to individuals seeking a graduate degree in programs that support the scrap processing or the recycling industry as a whole. Recognizing the need for affordable graduate education, the foundation created a $5,000 national scholarship open to graduates regardless of their affiliation with ISRI.

The foundation has extended the deadline for the application to July 15, 2020. Please see our application for more information. Visit for more information about our organization.
