Are you a college junior, senior, 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.


The Land Conservancy's scholarship program started in 1983 with the Russell W. Myers Scholarship, followed by the Rogers Family Scholarship in 2005. For 40 years TLCNJ has been proudly supporting future environmental leaders who are training for careers protecting our natural resources. In 2024, we are able to award six scholarships, thanks to generous supporters of our education initiatives. One student will be chosen for each of the six $10,000 scholarships. The selection process is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The 2024 scholarship cycle is closed. Scholarship winners will be announced soon.

Interested candidates must be New Jersey residents and undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled in an accredited college or university (though not necessarily a New Jersey university), with an academic average equivalent to a 3.3 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 or (973) 957-2683.
