scholarships

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 scholars 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 who hope 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 is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Download the scholarship application here. Entries must be emailed or postmarked by April 15.

Interested candidates must be New Jersey residents and undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled in an accredited college or university, with an academic average equivalent to a 3.0 or higher. The scholarship program is administered by our board of trustees. Payment of the scholarship is made directly to the institution that the successful candidate attends. If you have questions about our scholarship program, please contact Breanna Durkin at bdurkin@tlc-nj.org or (973) 541-1010 x14.
