Cumberland County Conservation District makes available more college scholarships

Over $3,000 in scholarship money is available to Cumberland County College students who are majoring in agriculture, environmental resource management, conservation/natural resources, forestry, or any other related field.

For the past 18 years, Cumberland County Conservation has been supporting students through the Environmental College Scholarship Program. This year, four $500 scholarships and one $1,000 scholarship will be available, according to a press release.

“For the third year, the $1,000 Wilbur E. Wolff Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to the first applicant,” said Carl Goschorn, the conservation area manager. “Wilbur Wolff has been a county conservation advocate and has worked in the Cumberland County Conservation Area for 29 years.”

Recipients must be current college students who have graduated from a Cumberland County High School. You must meet qualifications set by the conservation area board of directors, which include specialization in agriculture, conservation, natural resources, environmental resource management, forestry, or other related fields.

The deadline for applications is 4pm January 10, 2022.

Profits from the annual golf tournament and the sale of tree seedlings enabled the conservation area to offer scholarships for the current academic year, the statement said.

Students can apply for the scholarship online at www.ccpa.net/cd or choose to apply at Cumberland County Conservation District, 310 Allen Road, Suite 301, Carlisle PA, 17013.
