About this funder:
The Anna M. Rockefeller Fund was established in 1966 by Mrs. Robert D. Sterling with Mrs. Avery Rockefeller to support Mrs. Rockefeller's work on the environmental education packet The World Around You. The fund defrayed the expenses of the packet for many years. Renamed the Rockefeller Environmental Education Fund in 1993, the fund also underwrote one-third of the expense of producing the book Scientists on Biodiversity, published with the American Museum of Natural History. In 1999, Mrs. Edward S. Elliman, daughter of Mrs. Rockefeller, elected to direct the Fund's use to a wetlands scholarship to carry on the intent and spirit of her mother's work in the area of environmental education. The Executive Committee unanimously approved of this use at its June 1999 meeting.
The purpose of this is To promote wetlands conservation through the support of young scientists in their field work and research.
