Scholarship in Environmental Education

North Cascades Institute’s Graduate Scholarship for Diversity in Environmental Conservation and Education

What does the future of environmental leadership look like?

At North Cascades Institute we value ethnic and cultural diversity as a source of human strength and resilience. Our youth program audiences represent the full spectrum of diversity in our local communities. We want our teachers and graduate students to reflect that diversity too. 

Scholarship awards up to $10,000 applied to the North Cascades Institute residency fee. We encourage students from historically underrepresented identities to apply.
