SRPNEF Announces Scholarship Program for Graduating Seniors

We are excited to announce the establishment of an environmental sciences scholarship program for graduating seniors. Founded in 2003, the Foundation has grown from funding a program for 3rd graders to our current nature education programs for elementary, middle and high school students. The scholarship program is a logical extension of our programs and the objective to inspire environmental stewardship in our young citizens.

Funded by private donations, this inaugural program will offer at least three $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors in Murrieta. The only criteria is that the student plans to pursue a field of study and career in the environmental sciences.  While not a requirement, preference will be given to a student who has participated in one of the Foundation’s Habitat Studies and Restoration Programs at Vista Murrieta, Murrieta Mesa and Murrieta Valley High schools.

Scholarships will be awarded at a public presentation on April 25th and administered by Murrieta Dollars for Scholars, a chapter of Scholarship America, and a nationally recognized non-profit dedicated to mobilizing support for students getting into and graduating from college.
