NEW! Attention ALL Environmental Science majors
 

The Ohio EPA Awards 18 Scholarships

Eighteen students from 12 colleges each received $2,500 scholarships from Ohio EPA's Environmental Education Fund.  The fund receives one half of the civil penalties collected by the Agency for air and water pollution violations, and is also used toward grants for environmental education projects.  There were $45,000 in scholarships available this year.
A change in state law allowed students at Ohio's private four-year colleges to be eligible for the scholarships for the first time.  Eight of the 18 students are enrolled at private colleges.  Schools represented were Bowling Green State University, Capital University, Cleveland State University, University of Dayton, University of Findlay, Kenyon College, Oberlin College, Ohio Northern University, Ohio State University, Shawnee State University and Wittenberg University.

Applicants had to be undergraduate students with the following:

Majoring in Environmental Science or Environmental Engineering
Overall GPA of 3.0 or better
Experience in past or current research
Employment or volunteer work in an environmental field
