Starting in 2012, The Friends of Green Cay Nature Center, Inc. has awarded a one-time Environmental Scholarship to high school seniors intending to study any of the environmental sciences.

The Scholarship Committee consists of three former educators.

It is a rigorous process. Students must show proof of acceptance to an accredited four year college or university, provide transcripts, demonstrate community service hours, obtain two letters of recommendation, and answer two essay questions, what do you think is the most important environmental issue facing us today and why, and has volunteer service made a meaningful impact in your life and education.

This year, scholarship was awarded to one winner. She will have $4,000 applied to her school account.

In 2022 Friends of Green Cay Nature Scholarship Committee suddenly lost a valued member in Shelly Hymowitz. Among her many duties as a volunteer and as a member of the FOGC Board of Directors she particularly loved serving on the Scholarship Committee.  She enjoyed being part of the process of choosing young scholars that will “change the world”.  A scholarship has been named in her honor.
