students in their second year who have been accepted into a four-year accredited
member institution of the Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges &
Universities and will be enrolled as a junior or senior in the award year (as of fall 2102).

concentration courses and an overall minimum 3.0 GPA. The scholarship is open to
