RED BANK. NJ - The Monmouth County Audubon Society is pleased to announce that the organization will sponsor up to $3,000 in scholarships for the fall 2013 semester.

“Thanks to the generosity of one former member,” explained Harden Fowler, the organization’s conservation chairman and the creator of this program, “our organization will be sponsoring this annual scholarship for the foreseeable future. We are very excited to be able to subsidize the education of future naturalists or conservationists.”

The Ted Engberg Memorial Scholarship will be offered to Monmouth County high school spring graduates who will be continuing their education this fall in a field related to conservation. Criteria require that applicants be Monmouth County residents.

Full information on the scholarships and applications will be available after March 15 on the organization’s website: www.monmouthaudubon.org; or by contacting MCAS, P.O. Box 542, Red Bank, NJ 07701. Students can also get an application through their high school’s guidance office.

The deadline for submitting applications is May 1. The MCAS Scholarship Committee will review the applications, make their decisions and award the scholarships in June.
