Open to students in Highlands; deadline March 15
The Putnam Highlands Audubon Society is accepting applications for its annual Marty McGuire Audubon Scholarship, given to college students or college-bound high school seniors with an interest in field biology or field natural history, including the field aspects of ornithology, mammalogy, entomology, botany, herpetology, ichthyology and similar disciplines. Applications are due March 15.
The merit-based award is limited to students from specific zip codes in western Putnam and southwestern Dutchess counties. Preference will be given to students entering their freshman year, and the scholarship can be renewed.
The scholarship is expected to be at least $1,700. See putnamhighlandsaudubon.org.
