Great soil and water conservationists do not evolve from our education systems, but are nurtured throughout their education and career building period by conservation stalwarts who have traveled on before them. Credit must be given to the mentors and colleagues that have shaped the field of soil and water conservation before us. The reality is the number of professionals, mentors, college curriculums, and students are diminishing in the field of soil and water conservation. This Soil and Water Conservation Scholarship is meant to bring back into focus the vital necessity and passion for our discipline by encouraging current students to consider a career in soil and water conservation. The award is supported by funds from the Soil and Water Management & Conservation Division to the Agronomic Science Foundation and administered by SSSA.
A stipend of $3500 will be awarded to the selected candidate in August preceding the start of the fall semester. In addition, $500 will be awarded to the student awardee’s major professor or advisor to encourage the continued mentoring of the student in the field of soil and water conservation, as well as to entice the student candidate to apply for the scholarship, and to accompany the awardee attending the SSSA Annual Meeting.
