Scholarship to provide a monetary award of $1,500 for a promising upper division or graduate student who shows a commitment to communicate and interpret a love of nature and an understanding of the need to practice conservation. Eligibility for application is extended to any student or graduate student enrolled full-time in an accredited California post-secondary educational institution whose educational career goals clearly coincide with Emily Hewitt’s interest in communicating and interpreting nature's wonder. Students pursuing degrees in environmental protection, forestry, wildlife and fisheries, biology, parks and recreation, park management, environmental law and public policy, environmental art, and California history are encouraged to apply. Dedication to the ideals of the scholarship's honoree will be considered at least as important as financial need in making the award.
