Green Scholarships

The environment is a big deal to almost everyone these days. Environmental causes have been championed by celebrities, politicians, and a host of very vocal organizations and movements. Documentaries like An Inconvenient Truth are increasingly popular and more people are aware of environmental issues now than ever before. Concerns about global warming in the long-term and the cost of fuel in the short-term are pushing more and more people to consider going green. Scholarships are reflecting this trend, as numerous providers begin awarding green scholarships to environmentally-conscious students.

Winning Green Scholarships

Scholarship awards are offered across the diverse range of green interests, with scholarship money available to students ranging from sustainable agriculture majors to average students who just have ideas for making their communities more earth-friendly. Maybe you organized a "walk to school" rally on Earth Day, have a plan to raise money for a bike path in your town, or maybe you’re an architecture student planning to incorporate green building ideas into your designs. Anyone who cares about the environment and can back it up with a project, essay, or declared major could potentially win a green scholarship. These scholarship opportunities are especially welcome for truly driven students, as many green scholarships not only pay for school, but also allow students to implement their projects and ideas or to attend conferences to learn more about their cause of choice. If you want to eventually launch a career in an eco-oriented field, winning a green scholarship can be a great way to start.

By now, you’re probably wondering what green scholarships are out there and how you can find them.
