The Island Nature Trust in partnership with the Community Foundation of PEI are excited to announce the Island Nature Trust Environmentalist Award, sponsored by local Realtor Leigh Jenkins of Century 21.
The Awards consist of five $200 scholarships and five one-year Island Nature Trust Youth Memberships. The awards are available to a graduating student from Bluefield, Charlottetown Rural, Colonel Gray, Montague and Francois Buote respectively (one award per school). The successful applicants will have maintained a sound academic standing over the past 2 academic years and have been involved in a school or community-based club, committee or organization that is dedicated to environmental issues.
One of Island Nature Trust’s key missions is to provide education resources and learning opportunities to Island youth. They are dedicated to helping individuals learn and develop an understanding of the environmental threats that our Island is facing now and in the future. It is vital to engage our young communities so they can better prepare themselves and plan accordingly for the challenges ahead.
Bianca McGregor, Executive Director pf the Island Nature Trust, said “if you are a curious and conscientious individual who has a proven interest in environmental issues and nature conservation – we would like to invite you to apply for The Island Nature Trust Environmentalist Award. Interested students are asked to contact their school counsellor for an application”.
Kent Hudson, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of PEI added “we are happy to assist with the delivery of this scholarship in partnership with the Island Nature Trust. This is just another way for us to fulfill our mandate in connecting generous donors with wonderful causes here on PEI”.
The application deadline for the Island Nature Trust Environmentalist Award is May 1st, 2021. Best of luck to all!
