The ICF annually awards scholarships to outstanding high school
seniors in Illinois who demonstrate effective, voluntary,
long-term dedication to the preservation, protection or
enhancement of the state’s natural resources.
Four scholarships of $2,000 each are available for the current
school year. One of the scholarships is earmarked for a
qualified applicant who is a dependent of a current employee of
the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
"The ICF Conservation Achievement Scholarship program rewards
high school students interested in conservation stewardship,
encouraging them to focus their studies on enhancing and
protecting our natural resources,” said Colleen Callahan, chair
of the Illinois Conservation Foundation Board of Directors and
director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
