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.
