About the Programs

Scholarship Program

Each year, as part of our mission to encourage and promote leadership, achievement and the professional development of women in the environmental field, we present two graduate scholarships ($3,000 per scholarship) to outstanding women studying to pursue environmental careers.

Additionally, we award small grants (of under $2,000) to help fund organizations or programs that creatively address a locally-defined need to create, enhance, restore, or protect the natural environment. We also support projects that provide environmental awareness through educational sessions, with particular emphasis on encouraging girls and/or women in the sciences, engineering, or environmental fields.

This year, applications for our grants and scholarships will close at midnight on April 30th, 2018, with the awards taking place in November 2018 at our Annual Touchstone Awards Reception. Award recipients will be notified in June.
