Environmental Scholarships Available Now!
Are you a college undergraduate or graduate student from New Jersey studying environmental science or a related environmental field? Know someone who is? The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is looking to support future environmental leaders pursuing degrees in environmental science, natural resource management, conservation, park administration, and related fields by awarding five scholarships in 2023. For 39 years, we have been providing scholarships to residents of New Jersey who are pursuing degrees in environmental studies and aim to have careers protecting our natural resources. This year we will be awarding five scholarships thanks to generous gifts from the Leavens Foundation, the Rochkind Wagner Foundation, and an endowment made possible by the Rogers Family and others in memory of former trustee Gray Rogers and TLCNJ founder Russell W. Myers. One student will be chosen for each of the five $7,500 scholarships. The selection process includes a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Entries must be emailed or postmarked by March 15. Our past scholarship recipients have not only achieved academic excellence, but also embody many values of the organization, including leadership and a passion for protecting our natural resources. Danielle, pictured above, just graduated from Stockton University with a double major in marine science and environmental science. She is interested in conserving ecosystems and natural resources, and she has her eye on a master’s degree in conservation biology.
She says, “This scholarship means the world to me. Not only does it lift some financial burden from myself and my family, but it also ensures that I will be able to graduate this year and continue down the path to achieving my dreams.”
