Ann Brown Scholarship
The Lancaster County Conservation District Ann Brown Scholarships are made possible through an Ann Brown bequest, and from contributions of individuals concerned that we maintain and protect our natural resources. Applications are accepted in February and March from students continuing their education with the intent of majoring in a curriculum which focuses on natural resources and/or conservation. Some examples of acceptable programs of studies would be: Environmental Sciences; Wildlife and/or Fisheries Biology; Environmental Resource Management; or other related programs, leading to an advanced degree (2yr Associate Degree or 4yr Baccalaureate Degree).
Basis for the selection will be determined on past performance and activities, current school and community involvement, future purpose and direction plus the applicant’s ability to communicate. The scholarship committee, prior to the final selection, will interview the top candidates. The District is looking to provide three $1,000 scholarships in 2017.
