Do you know a college student who is passionate about the environment and about contributing to environmental conservation? Are they currently pursuing a degree and attending a college in Yavapai or Mohave County? Or maybe you yourself fit this profile.
The Prescott Audubon Society’s scholarship committee will soon be accepting applications for the 2024 cycle of the annual Environmental Scholarship. Interested undergraduate students can find the online application, eligibility details, and criteria for selection on the PAS website: Scholarships & Youth - Prescott Audubon Society
Applicants do not have to be majoring in environmental science. One past awardee was getting a Bachelor’s degree in Global Security, and his project focused on water conservation in the Middle East. Another awardee pursued an Associate’s degree in Oenology and worked on recycling the waste from crushed grapes. Last year’s recipient is seeking a degree in Cultural and Regional Studies, and plans to engage Native American students in conservation efforts along the Colorado River system.
The message is: The environment is everyone’s responsibility, and ideas for protecting it come from all segments of the world’s populations. So, please pass the word. Applications will be accepted starting October 1, 2023. Deadline for submissions: Nov 15, 2023
Funds for the scholarship come from PAS’s yearly Bird-a-thon.
