UPDATE: The scholarship deadline has been extended until April 15, so there's still time to apply! But don't delay!
Are you a college undergraduate or graduate student in 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.
For 38 years, our organization has 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 increasing the number of scholarships awarded to five, thanks to a generous gift from the Rochkind-Wagner Foundation. One student will be chosen for each of the five $7,500 scholarships. The selection process includes a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
