Scholarships for Environmental Studies Majors

Interested in a career in conservation, ecology or natural resource protection? Chances are you'll pursue a degree in environmental studies. Since you might need to hold an advanced degree for employment purposes, you may wish to explore ways you can fund your education. A large source of funding comes from scholarship programs. Some scholarships are awarded by foundations and societies, such as the American Nuclear Society and the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation. To apply for these types of scholarships, you likely need to submit recommendation letters, academic transcripts and a personal essay. Many universities offering degrees in environmental studies or environmental science fund scholarships. Privately-funded awards or scholarships funded by professional associations such as the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) are plentiful and can be one-year or multi-year awards ranging in many cases from one-time $1,000 - $5,000 awards up to $12,000 for three years. Learn more about scholarships that can sustain your environmental studies education by taking a closer look at the list below.
