Scholarships for Budding Ecologists

Do you know a budding ecologist?

Do you have students or children of your own who have a penchant for helping the planet? Maybe you teach an environmental science or biology class and are looking for an incentive to get your students interested in taking initiative on a local conservation or clean-up project. The Apprentice Ecologist Initiative™ is a program that encourages students ages 13 – 21 to take on leadership roles while helping their community through environmental/conservation education and action.

Students conduct their own project, document it, and write an essay about it, then they can submit it for a chance to win an $850 scholarship. The deadline for completing the project and uploading the essay this year is midnight GMT on December 31, 2010. The program is run by the Nicodemus Wilderness Project.
