Michigan Scholarships in Conservation Program

The Michigan Scholarships in Conservation Program is designed to be a strong and continuing activity of the Michigan Chapter to advance the science and art of good land use. The program offers Michigan Chapter members a convenient and significant way of providing long term support to the goals of the Michigan Chapter and the Soil and Water Conservation Society through facilitating the education of future soil and water conservation professionals.

 

Scholarships are to encourage qualified students to enter the field of natural resource conservation and to prepare them for such careers through an organized program of study in an institution of higher education offering training in appropriate areas. Awards will be based on interest in conservation as evidenced by scholastic ability and participation in conservation activities.

"There are national associations for the preservation of wild flowers and the preservation of propagation of wildlife, but not for the preservation of the soil.  Conservation of this most fundamental and important of all resources is seldom seriously considered by anyone not directly or indirectly associated with the ownership or management of a farm, and is too infrequently considered even by the farmers themselves." 1928  Hugh Hammond Bennett, co-founder of the Soil and Water Conservation Society (formerly the Soil Conservation Society of America)
