Camden County Seniors Eligible for Sustainability Scholarships
Camden County high school seniors graduating this June are eligible to apply for a new scholarship being awarded by Sustainable Cherry Hill (SCH), an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that works to build a sustainable New Jersey community. Applications must be received by March 15 and the winners will be announced at the SCH Earth Festival on April 25 at Croft Farm, in Cherry Hill.
Students planning to pursue post-secondary education in sustainability or those seeking to be change agents in the world are eligible to apply. The organization will award up to three scholarships of $500 each.
“Leadership in sustainability is vital in society today as we search for solutions to the challenges of climate change, economy, health and wellness, and the many issues that affect the lives of our children and our children’s children,” says SCH Board Member and Communications Director Brenda Jorett. “It is our hope that this complex and critical field will have ongoing generations of critical thinkers and leaders who will forge cutting-edge theories and solutions to global sustainability issues.”
