The Bradford County Conservation District is once again announcing the availability of the Ernest Manchester Memorial Scholarship to Bradford County college students. College students in their 3rd or 4th year of a Bachelor degree program or their 2nd year of an Associate degree program, and pursuing a degree in agriculture or a natural resource related field, are eligible for a $500 scholarship.

The Scholarship was created as a memorial for Ernest Manchester who was a devoted supporter of conservation of our County’s natural resources. The memorial was set up by the family under the administration of the Conservation District with the mission of supporting County college students that pursue degrees in natural resource management, conservation, agriculture or other related fields.

It’s an investment in our youth and how the future of our community will be able to address natural resource decisions in the future. This investment has really paid off in a very short time, as several scholarship recipients have come back to actively work in Bradford County in a natural resource management field.

Applications are taken by the Conservation District during the summer months and awarded in the Fall. Application deadline has been extended to Oct. 31. For more information and application forms contact the Bradford County Conservation District at 570265-5539 ext. 6 or on the web at www.bccdpa.com and www.facebook.com/bradfordcountyconservationdistrict.

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
