The Ontario County Board of Supervisors announced they would again award the Casella Environmental Waste Management academic scholarships to students who reside in Ontario County to encourage students who are in college or college-bound who are pursuing majors in environmental studies, agriculture or agricultural business, including waste management.
Eight $2,500 scholarships are provided each year to students that have been accepted into a recognized college level program of study leading to an associate or bachelor's degree. Scholarship recipients are chosen for their outstanding academic records, strong references, and a well written essay showing his or her dedication to a career that will support the environment, agriculture industry, or waste management system.
Applications are due by March 24, 2023 to the Scholarship Coordinator, Sue Wells-Bowen. Recipients will be notified of their scholarship by June 15, 2023 and invited to attend an award reception with their family which will be held prior to a Board of Supervisors meeting in July. Scholarships will be paid directly to the recipient's college Bursar office.
All the details for the scholarship and application are below.
