Evergreen UWCD offers scholarships
The Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District will be offering a scholarship program to the students of the 2013 graduating classes that include home school and private school students that reside within the four counties (Atascosa, Wilson, Frio, and Karnes) comprising the Evergreen District.
The program will provide scholarships of $1,500, $1,000, and $500 for first, second, and third places, respectively. The scholarship winners may reapply for the same level of funding for their second, third, and fourth years of college by request, if they maintain a minimum 3.00 grade-point average, and take at least 12 hours of courses per semester.
In order to qualify for a scholarship, students must submit to the district an essay of 750-1,000 words on the following topic:
What is the current state law that applies to groundwater, who owns the groundwater, and how do groundwater conservation districts affect the law and the ownership of groundwater?
In addition to the essay, consideration will be given to the student’s grade-point average, activities, and honors.
The essay is due no later than 5 p.m. on March 29, 2013, and must be submitted on a compact disc or flash drive and in the Microsoft Word document format. A cover letter must accompany the essay with the student’s name and contact information, grade-point average, and a list of the student’s activities and honors. The envelope containing the essay must be addressed as follows:
