These scholarships are available to undergraduate students (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who are currently enrolled in Mississippi public and private colleges and universities, residing in Mississippi, and majoring in areas related to the environmental sciences. Seniors graduating in fall/winter 2018 are not eligible.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, the MRC and Mississippi Beverage Association are offering up to ten $1,000 scholarships to college students majoring in agricultural sciences, biochemistry, biology, biological or environmental engineering, environmental education and technology, forestry, microbiology, wildlife management, and other fields related to environmental science.
Students who are active in promoting recycling, composting, and related sustainable practices are encouraged to apply regardless of major, as these activities are given additional weight when ranking applications.
