2024 Scholarship Announcement

The TJSWCD provides annual scholarships for individuals wanting to pursue a degree in a natural resource-related field.

We are pleased to announce the availability of our 2024 Scholarship Awards. The TJSWCD will give $3,500 in scholarship money to students residing within our District (Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa, and Nelson Counties, and the City of Charlottesville). The scholarship funds may be awarded entirely to one individual, or may be divided based upon the merit of the applicants.

The TJSWCD scholarship is available to full-time students who demonstrate an active interest in conservation and are enrolled in, or have applied to, a college freshman level curriculum. The scholarship must be applied toward courses for which the student will receive college credit, and the payment will be made directly to the student’s academic institution. In addition, one applicant will be nominated by TJSWCD to the Virginia Association of Soil & Water Conservation Districts (VASWCD) to be considered for one of four $2,000 scholarships awarded to statewide winners.

Applications are due no later than 4PM on March 15. Late or incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
