Dan Stammen believes in investing in the future leaders that recognize the importance of protecting our planet from deforestation, pollution, climate change, and more. He is inspired by those who are passionate and dedicated. As such, Mr. Stammen launched the Dan Stammen Scholarship Program to help those pursuing higher education.
The Dan Stammen Scholarship Program will award:
- One scholarship of $1,500 USD (first place)
- One scholarship of $1,000 USD (second place)
This scholarship program is open to students in any year of study currently enrolled at a U.S. college or university for the Fall 2019 term. Students in all programs are eligible to apply. Applicants must submit proof of enrolment and write an essay of at least 500 words.
DEADLINE: Tuesday, September 3, 2019
In addition to explaining why they chose their academic program and how they plan to make a difference in their field after graduation, students must accurately demonstrate the importance of protecting our planet and efforts they currently make to do so. This includes any physical, vocal, or financial support applicants have made or currently make to help clean our planet or reduce their ecological or carbon footprint. Examples may include actions such as conserving energy, volunteer cleaning efforts, participating in environmental petitions or protests, and more.
A competitive essay will demonstrate the applicant’s passion for their chosen field effectively, as well as the applicant’s commitment to the fight to save our planet. The two applicants with the most compelling essays will be awarded accordingly with either first or second place.
Mr. Stammen and a judging panel will be responsible for evaluating entries. All students that meet the criteria and take a stand against the destruction of our environment are encouraged to apply. Please read the Terms & Conditions prior to applying.
We thank all for their submissions to the Dan Stammen Scholarship Program. Only the two successful applicants will be contacted. We wish you luck with your submission!
