Thanks to the much-appreciated support of longtime member Evelyn Bishop, South Shore Audubon Society is offering $500 Jerry Bishop Environmental Scholarships this spring for two college juniors, seniors, or graduate students who are continuing their studies toward a degree in an area of biological or environmental science, such as wildlife management, forestry, animal behavior, ecology, marine biology, oceanography, mammalogy, or ornithology. Our annual college scholarship program began in 1994 and was named in memory of Jerry two years later.
Applicants should be residents of one of the towns listed at www.ssaudubon.org/areas-we-serve.asp and/or attend a college in Nassau or Suffolk County. Membership in an SSAS household is preferred but not required.
Applications are due by April 30, 2018
