NC Foundation for Soil and Water Conservation

The purpose of the Careers in Conservation Scholarship is to increase the number of people working in the field of natural resource management and agriculture by supporting students attending NC community colleges and universities in undergraduate and graduate programs in related fields. Over $158,000 from private donors has been given to support 140 annual scholarships since the program’s inception.

The 2022 applicant period opens November 5, 2021, and closes February 1, 2022.

Funding awards are announced in April. Eligible applicants can receive up to $1,000 per year, renewable in future years. Subsequent awards are contingent upon demonstration of successful academic progression. Current scholars are required to submit a new application each year.

All applicants should have a declared major in agronomy, agricultural or civil engineering, sustainable land management, agriculture education, animal science, forestry, natural resource conservation or management, plant science, soil science, water management, water quality, wildlife management, or other closely related degree programs. In addition, all applicants must be attending or planning to attend a North Carolina college or university.
