Green Scholarship Application Now Available

October 14, 2013

MVSU’s Sustainability Initiative is now offering a Green Scholarship.  Scholarship awards are offered across a diverse range of green interests. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 23. 

 

Scholarship money is available to students pursuing a wide range of majors who have ideas for making their communities more earth-friendly. Maybe you organized a “walk to school” rally on Earth Day or have a plan to raise money for a bike path in your town. Anyone who cares about the environment and can show proof of their care for the environment with a project, essay or declared major could potentially win a green scholarship.

 

Eligible applicants are freshmen with at least 12 hours and currently enrolled at MVSU. Green Scholarships will be awarded annually in the amount of $250 based on the availability of funds, but are not automatically renewed. Four (4) full scholarships will be awarded this year.

 

General eligibility requirements:

 

• Complete a Green Scholarship application each year;

 

• Must maintain a 2.7 or higher cumulative grade point average;

 

• Must be enrolled as an undergraduate student;

 

• Submit either one letter of recommendation or provide contact information for two references from an instructor, supervisor, community member or clergy member.
