Since it began in 2000, the Ohio Environmental Science and Engineering Scholarship Program has provided more than $620,000 to 255 students statewide.
The Ohio Academy of Science, which administers the program, is once again offering scholarships to students with plans to work in environmental sciences or environmental engineering upon graduation.
To apply, students can fill out the application here and mail it before Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Along with their applications, students at four-year colleges are asked to write three essays describing their reasons for choosing a career in the environmental sciences, any unique contributions they bring to the field, and their extracurricular activities.
The program is funded by the Ohio Environmental Educational Fund of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
