The South Carolina Wildlife Federation is honored to be in a position to distribute educational grants to full-time students pursuing a degree in any environmental field at South Carolina schools of higher education. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible, based on their performance in academia and in related community activities.
The scholarship is for full-time students currently pursuing degrees in any environmental field at South Carolina schools of higher education. Scholarship winners will be announced in January, and awarded in February each year.
The applications will need to be submitted online by October 31st, and will address the student's educational goal and career interests as well as employment and volunteer experience, including leadership.
In addition, a brief note from a supporting faculty member must also be submitted electronically. Selection will be based on a balance of these factors, and determined by a committee of the Federation Board.
Environmental solutions are not only scientific--they include historical, political, economic and cultural perspectives. The environment includes buildings, highways and ocean tankers as well as pine trees and coyotes. To build a sustainable society, an understanding of social and ecological systems is crucial.
Knowledge lays the groundwork for analyzing environmental problems, resolving conflicts, and preventing new problems from arising. The South Carolina Wildlife Federation is committed to supporting future leaders by helping to provide the financial resources necessary to lay the groundwork for more responsible decision-making tomorrow.
