The Channel Counties Chapter of the Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) is dedicated to supporting students who are planning to engage in a career in the environmental field. As part of our support endeavors, we are offering three $500 scholarships to undergraduate students attending Cuesta College, Allan Hancock College, Santa Barbara City College, or Ventura College. We are enthusiastic about supporting all hardworking students in this particularly challenging time. Due to factors related to COVID-19 and the ever-increasing costs of higher education, community college remains an attractive option for the next generation of bright and diverse environmental professionals. By expanding the AEP Scholarship Program to community colleges, we hope to help make higher education more attainable for students from a broad spectrum of backgrounds.
The Channel Counties Chapter of AEP will accept applications from undergraduate students attending Cuesta College, Allan Hancock College, Santa Barbara City College, or Ventura College who are actively engaged in the pursuit of a career with an environmental emphasis. Applicants must be enrolled in classes at the time the scholarship application is due and the subsequent academic term in order to be eligible.
Award criteria include level of financial need, overall GPA (no minimum requirement), content, flow, and grammar of the personal essay, and demonstrated involvement in the environmental field. A copy of college transcripts (unofficial or official) and maximum two-page essay are required along with a completed application form.
The award can be used for any aspect of education, including tuition, books, housing, research, etc.
Application Deadline for 2021/2022 schoolyear: All applications must be submitted by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 11, 2022, in order to be eligible.
