Green Scholarships

There has been increasing concern for the environment as causes have been supported by celebrities, politicians, and a host of highly vocal organizations and movements. Documentaries such as An Inconvenient Truth are increasingly popular and more people are aware of environmental issues now than ever before. Concerns about long-term global warming effects and the cost of fuel are pushing more people to consider going green. Scholarships are reflecting this trend, as numerous providers are 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 have ideas for making their communities more eco-friendly. You may have organized a "walk to school" rally on Earth Day, raised money for a bike path in your town, or perhaps you are an architecture student planning to incorporate green building ideas into your designs. To those who care about the environment and can back it up with a project, essay, or declared major, there is potential to win green scholarships. These scholarship opportunities are especially welcome for driven students, as many green scholarships not only pay for school, but also allow students to implement their projects and ideas or attend conferences to learn more about their prospective cause. If you are considering launching 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.
