Eco-Friendly Scholarships

During the post-Inconvenient Truth months, I couldn't help but steadfastly pursue an eco-friendly lifestyle. Sure, I sporadically recycled before, but, regardless of attacks on film's accuracy, it made things happen for me. Thanks to a great deal of nagging and a plethora of guilt-tripping orations, I even convinced my mom to recycle--on occasion.

If you haven’t been swayed as of yet, here’s another good reason to go green: it pays. To encourage students to learn about the environment, alternative energy and about keeping the land and ecosystem safe, numerous scholarship providers have created eco-friendly scholarships. Check out the awards listed below for options you may benefit from, and conduct a free college scholarship search for additional information about college scholarships and grants.
