CHAMPAIGN – The annual Conservation Achievement Scholarship is now accepting applications, and State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) urges eligible Illinois high school seniors to apply.
The Conservation Achievement Scholarship will award up to four scholarships of $2,000 each to outstanding high school seniors in Illinois who demonstrate effective, voluntary, long-term dedication to the preservation, protection or enhancement of the state’s natural resources.
“I encourage high school seniors interested in conversation stewardship and protecting our natural resources to apply for this scholarship,” said Bennett, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. “This scholarship opportunity is a chance to help students lessen the burden of college debt and will help you achieve your post-secondary educational goals.”
The scholarship funds may be used for tuition, college or university fees, textbooks, or room and board. Funds are mailed directly to the college or university of the successful applicant.
Detailed instructions and the 2022 application form can be accessed through the ICF website. Applications must be received by the ICF by March 1, 2022.
