Forum Scholarships

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay offers a limited number of scholarships for the 2019 Chesapeake Watershed Forum registration, lodging, and meals. 

We believe a more diverse Forum improves the experience of all attendees. Diverse perspectives create richer discussions, creative partnerships, and a more inclusive restorative environmental movement. We strive for the Forum to look, feel, and talk like all of our Bay communities. Each year we try to increase representation from previously underrepresented communities and this scholarship helps us make that happen.

The scholarship gives preference to those who:

  • Are a first-time recipient of a Chesapeake Watershed Forum scholarship.
  • Have a financial need.
  • Come from a diverse background, including racial and ethnic backgrounds, that is traditionally underrepresented at the Chesapeake Watershed Forum.

Application Instructions

The application process for the Chesapeake Watershed Forum scholarships is now closed. If you requested a scholarship in the registration form but did not complete the scholarship application, we ask that you either cancel or pay your registration fees. The registration fee can be found on your registration confirmation.

We will make our final decisions on scholarship recipients by no later than Monday, October 7, 2019. Applicants who do not receive a scholarship must either cancel their registration at that time or pay for their registration.
