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
