The Mississippi Recycling Coalition's College Scholarship Committee is proud to announce that applications for the 2017-2018 academic year are now being accepted. MRC in conjunction with the Mississippi Beverage Association are offering up to ten $1,000 scholarships. The scholarships are available to undergraduates (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors) enrolled in Mississippi public and private colleges and universities who are either majoring in areas related to environmental sciences, environmental education, and/or are active in promoting recycling or other sustainable practices.
Applications and transcripts must be received by October 27, 2017 to be considered for an award. When completing the application, we encourage applicants to highlight any recycling and/or sustainable activities as these are given additional weight during the review process. Applications with missing or incomplete transcripts will not be eligible for an award.
