Ted Engberg Conservation Scholarships 2019


$3,000 in scholarships available through Monmouth County Audubon's Ted Engberg Wildllife Conservation Scholarships

The Monmouth County Audubon Society is pleased to announce that for the 14th year we will sponsor the Ted Engberg Wildlife Conservation Scholarship.

This year a total of $3,000 will be available. MCAS hopes to award scholarships of $1,500 to two qualified Monmouth County high school graduates who will continue their education this fall in a field related to wildlife conservation. The Board has approved these scholarships as an important part of our mission to promote the awareness, appreciation and conservation of natural resources through educational outreach.

The scholarship is awarded in memory of Ted Engberg, who was on the MCAS Board of Directors and was a generous supporter of our organization for decades.

Full information on the scholarships and applications (in an interactive PDF format) can be downloaded after March 15 by clicking HERE. Hard copies are available by contacting us at: Monmouth County Audubon Society, P.O. Box 542, Red Bank, NJ 07701. Students graduating from a Monmouth County high school can also get information through their Guidance Office.

The one-page application requires: name and contact information; high school transcript with current GPA; a letter of acceptance from a four-year college or university, and a 500-word essay, “Why wildlife conservation is important to me.” Applicants must be residents of Monmouth County.

Applications must be postmarked on or before May 1. The MCAS Scholarship Committee will review all eligible applications (supplemental information will not be considered), make their decisions and award the $1,500 scholarship checks to the winners by June 15, 2019.

Monmouth County Audubon Society looks forward to awarding the scholarships to worthy students with an interest in conservation again in 2019. We are delighted to support their interest in a healthier ecosystem and cleaner environment for future generations to enjoy..
