The Lancaster County Conservation District will again be offering a $1,000 scholarship to two Lancaster County high school seniors. Applications will be accepted from students continuing their education in the 2006/2007 school year 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). The completed application must be received in the LCCD office by April 14, 2006. The scholarship committee of LCCD will conduct a review of the applicants. 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. An announcement of the successful candidates will be made by May 15, 2006. The scholarships are made possible from a bequest that was made to the District by Ann Brown, an individual concerned that we maintain and protect our natural resources. For more information go to the district web site, or contact the office.
