Our Scholarship Profile:  Who, What, Where, and When

TWO $1000 Environmental Scholarships Available for 2023!

Do you know a college student who is passionate about the environment and about contributing to environmental conservation? Are they currently pursuing a degree and attending a college in Yavapai or Mohave County? Or maybe you yourself fit this profile. The Prescott Audubon Society’s scholarship committee is now accepting applications for the 2023 cycle of the annual Environmental Scholarship. Interested undergraduate students can find the online application, eligibility details, and criteria for selection on the Prescott Audubon Society website page entitled "Scholarships & Youth" [link below] . Applicants do not have to be majoring in environmental science. One past awardee was getting a Bachelor’s degree in Global Security, and his project focused on water conservation in the Middle East. Another awardee pursued an Associate’s degree in Oenology and worked on recycling the waste from crushed grapes. Last year’s recipient is seeking a degree in Cultural and Regional Studies, and plans to engage Native American students in conservation efforts along the Colorado River system. The message is: The environment is everyone’s responsibility, and ideas for protecting it come from all segments of the world’s populations. So, please pass the word. We are accepting applications starting October 1, 2022. Deadline for submissions: Dec. 10, 2022.

And as a bonus: In 2023, there will be a second $1000-scholarship in honor of Kathy Wingert, longtime Prescott Audubon Society member and beloved educator. Funds for the scholarships come from PAS’s yearly Bird-a-thon, and this year the Monday Lady Birders made an extra push to raise additional funds so two students could benefit from the scholarship. We think Kathy would approve!
