Lindy Hamlett Education Scholarship offered by district

Each year, through the Lindy Hamlett Education Scholarship Fund, the Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District offers three $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors and one $1,000 scholarship to a currently enrolled undergraduate college student.

These scholarships give financial support to students planning to enroll or currently enrolled full-time in a curriculum related to natural resource conservation and/or environmental studies or agriculture. While other majors may be considered, preference is given to applicants studying natural resource conservation, environmental studies or an agriculture related field. Applicants must have a permanent residence within Amelia, Nottoway, or Prince Edward counties to be eligible for the scholarship. The deadline to submit applications is March 19, 2024.

More information and the applications can be found on the group’s website. That’s at www.piedmontswcd.org and on the Piedmont Soil & Water Conservation District Facebook and Instagram pages.
