The Donald A. Williams Soil Conservation Scholarship provides financial assistance to members of SWCS who are currently employed but who wish to improve their technical or administrative competence in a conservation-related field through coursework at an accredited college or through a program of special study. A 'special study program' can be defined as any study program that does not involve formal coursework at an accredited college or university as the major study activity, such as: spending time at a college or university working informally with a professor on a special problem or research project, including sitting in on some coursework, doing library study, and consulting with college staff; a well-planned travel program to collect information, study work in progress, consult with experts, and in other ways improve the applicant's knowledge and enhance his/her job effectiveness and opportunities; studying at a recognized vocational or technical school; or studying and working with a commercial or industrial organization or government agency. Employees or immediate family members of employees of the Soil and Water Conservation Society are ineligible to apply. Those applicants who hold other SWCS scholarships or internships for this upcoming fall semester are also ineligible to apply.
The application deadline date has not yet been finalized for this year, but is expected to remain the same as last year. The deadline date shown here is tentative based on last year's date. Please che ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
