Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

The South Carolina Wildlife Federation announced the creation of the Nicole Chadwick Memorial Scholarship Fund in addition to the annual scholarship application period. The Nicole Chadwick Memorial Scholarship Fund was created out of a desire by community members to honor the long-lasting impact of Nicole Chadwick’s work for wildlife conservation. The new scholarship fund will specifically be awarded to female students studying environmental fields in South Carolina.
 
In addition to the newly created fund, students pursuing environment-focused degrees in either undergraduate or graduate programs in the state of South Carolina are encouraged to apply for SCWF’s annual scholarship awards. Applicants have from now until October 31st to submit their applications on SCWF’s website.
 
“Nicole Chadwick’s passing was a devastating loss for South Carolina’s wildlife conservation community,” said SCWF Executive Director Sara Green. “Honoring her legacy with the new memorial fund will ensure SCWF can continue to empower students who are pursuing environmental fields. Education remains a top priority within SCWF’s mission because we recognize wildlife habitat conservation depends on our future generations.”
 
All scholarship applications must include the student’s educational goals and career interests, leadership and volunteer experience, and a letter of recommendation from a supporting faculty member.
