Marin RCD Scholarship Application!

At this time, Marin RCD’s Scholarship program is on hold and not taking applications in 2024.

Congratulations to Adelaide Ergastolo, a USF student studying bees in Marin County and Sloan Farinha, entering the Forestry program at UCB. They are our 2023 scholarship recipients!

The Scholarship Fund’s Purpose

Two scholarships are available to students, interns or trainees who wish to cover education or training costs including but not limited to transportation, housing, education, materials, etc.

The purpose of the Fund is to support Marin RCD’s mission and activities of protecting and enhancing natural and agricultural resources in Marin County, including selected areas outside of the Marin RCD boundaries.  It is the wish of the Donor that grants be made to support internship programs of the Marin RCD – to assist and support young interns who wish to learn on-the job-skills by covering their costs such as transportation, housing, education, etc., and to help the Marin RCD to cover its costs of recruiting, training, and management of the internship program.

While the Marin RCD may accept applications from all young candidates that may be interested, it is the desire of the Donor that due consideration will be given to attracting internship candidates who are disadvantaged by reason of economics, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, including young persons who currently live on or work on ranches or farms. The Marin RCD is encouraged to work with all schools, junior colleges and universities in attracting qualified candidates.  It is the Donor’s wish that grants by the Fund be used to augment and supplement funds available from other sources for such activities, and not to replace those funds or funding sources.”
