Scholarship Opportunity

Posted on March 2, 2023 at 10:51 AM by Kaitlynn McCumiskey

This week we’re taking a pause on our usual content to share a scholarship opportunity with you.

The Ontario County Board of Supervisors announced they would again award the Casella Environmental Waste Management academic scholarships to qualified Ontario County (applicants must be a resident of Ontario County) college or college-bound students who are pursuing majors in environmental studies, agriculture or agricultural business; including waste management. Applications (to include references) must be submitted by March 24, 2023.

Casella Waste Systems, Inc. has established this 20-year fund to support scholarships to encourage students to pursue college-level studies and careers in the fields of environmental studies, agriculture, agriculture business and waste management.

Each scholarship recipient will be chosen by a team of reviewers by the established criteria. Recipients are chosen for their outstanding academic records, strong references, and for a well-written essay showing her or his dedication to a career that will support the environment.
