 With the multitude of eco-related scholarships for eco-students, choosing where to apply entails a major task ahead. Hopefully, with this list of 50 awesome scholarships for eco-minded students you'll be able to narrow your choices down to find out which suits you best. 

* I'd also like to add to this article's information by saying simply going online and using the organization title as a key word you can find out a lot more about what they are offering and any requirements they may have. Perhaps you can find several scholarships and grants, instead of focusing on just one source. Don't forget to do a search online for your particular area, country, county, state, province, city, etc. You never know what you might find. There are grants and scholarships for all ages to be found, if we just put in the time to look.  You might also find the interviews we have done on our radio show with non-profits and environmental groups where you can learn how they are run, difficulties they have faced and what they did to over come issues, and much more. There are also lots of job search, interview and resume discussions with a wide array of professionals that may help you as well.
