I want to be a part of this renewed effort and use my natural abilities as a communicator to push back against the rather formidable forces behind the anti-environmentalist movement. I sincerely hope you will consider supporting this non-traditional avenue towards global sustainability and conservation.

Each of these described awards has the potential to offset the expenses of required higher education and allow recipients to focus on building their writing skills in their specific areas of choice.
