The York County Conservation District will award scholarships to any York County residents majoring in – or planning to major in – the field of conservation (agriculture, environmental, natural history, natural resource management or related science field). Applicants must be currently enrolled or already accepted to an accredited college or university. Applicant must not have received a York County scholarship in the last year.
The York County Conservation District was founded in 1938 when 554 farmers signed a petition requesting assistance for protecting the natural resources of York County. Today, we assist farmers and all county residents by promoting maintenance, improvement and wise use of land, water, soil and other natural resources. We accomplish this mission through educational programs and the administration of laws and regulations for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the State Conservation Commission.
