Applications are being currently accepted by the Illinois Conservation Foundation for the 2023 Conservation Achievement Scholarship program. The foundation annually awards scholarships to outstanding high school seniors in Illinois who demonstrate dedication to the preservation, protection, or enhancement of the state’s natural resources.
There are four scholarships available worth $2,000 for the current school year. One of the scholarships is reserved for an applicant who is a dependent of a current employee of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
Colleen Callahan, chair of the Illinois Conservation Foundation Board of Directors and director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources says that the ICF Conservation Achievement Scholarship program rewards high school students interested in conservation.
ICF Scholarships have been awarded since 2005 and applicants must be an Illinois resident and a senior in an Illinois high school. Applications must be received by March 3rd, 2023. Detailed instructions and the 2023 application form can be accessed through the ICF website at www.ilconservation.org. Contact the Illinois Conservation Foundation at 217-785-2003 or email@example.com for more information or to make a donation to support the Conservation Achievement Scholarship program.
