The Scholarship Program is administered by the Board of Trustees of The Land Conservancy of New Jersey and is awarded annually to deserving individuals who plan careers in environmental science, natural resource management, conservation, horticulture, park administration, or a related field. An applicant must be a student in good standing with at least 15 credits completed, have an academic average equivalent to a 3.0 or higher, be a resident of New Jersey and considering a career in New Jersey that is consistent with the goals of the Conservancy. Selected finalists will have to attend an interview with The Committee in late May or early June. Scholarship funds are paid only directly to the institution where the recipient is enrolled, not to the individual.
