EPP Undergraduate Scholarship Program

Deadline: January 31, 2022

Available to: College Sophomores

Scholarship Description: This program targets students who are U.S. citizens and have completed their sophomore year, are attending minority-serving institutions (MSIs), and have recently declared, or are about to declare a major in atmospheric, oceanic, or environmental disciplines that support these sciences. Students receive financial support during their junior and senior years, which includes paid internships, travel expenses, and participation in the Education and Science Symposium in Silver Spring, MD.

IUPUI Sustainability Scholarship

Amount: $20,000

Deadline: January 23, 2022

Available to: High School Seniors

Scholarship Description: Co-funded by the College Football Playoff Host Committee and IUPUI Sustainability, the purpose of this program is to create an opportunity for one student to learn through the lens of sustainability in any related discipline while at IUPUI. This award will be used toward a four-year undergraduate degree while fostering rich hands-on learning opportunities through volunteer experiences. Recipients must aspire to pursue a career in sustainability and be willing to commit to a year-long internship with the IUPUI Office of Sustainability.

Future Without Speciesism Award

Amount: $10,000

Deadline: Applications Accepted Year-round

Available to: Undergraduate & Graduate Students

Scholarship Description: PETA is awarding prizes to students who use their talents to save animals from exploitation by coming up with a game-changing idea that they can develop into a specific action plan or design to replace animal use. From mushroom leather and recycled ocean plastics in the clothing industry as a replacement for animal leather to placentas-on-a-chip that take the place of toxin studies in mice and monkeys, innovation knows no bounds.

Did you know that Synthetic Frog dissection software has been developed to keep the declining frog population safe in nature? Animal use is being replaced with cutting-edge technology because creative, young minds apply themselves to finding ways to save the environment, stop pollution, improve human health, and end society’s archaic dependence on animals as our surrogates, tools, amusements, and in other exploitive ways. Applicants are asked to identify an area in which animals are still exploited and to create a potentially patentable, original idea or prototype that allows for their replacement.

According to the Higher Ed Immigrant Portal, first-generation immigrants accounted for 28% of all college and university students in 2018. Although there is no federal law prohibiting undocumented and DACA-eligible students from enrolling in higher education, the path to earning a degree can be challenging in today’s political climate. To make up for the lack of federal financial aid available to these students, many states and colleges offer other forms of financial aid to help these students earn their degree with less debt. There are also a great deal of  scholarships available for undocumented and DACA-eligible students in the United States.
