Scholarships and Education Credits

Scholarship Fund

Established many years ago by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and The Conservation Fund, the National Mitigation Banking Association continues to join in the support  each year along with this year’s supporters.

Full and partial scholarships are available with priority given to state and tribal entities, but also open to nonprofits and academia who are unable to cover their costs of participation in the Conference. The Conference Scholarship Fund typically provides for the conference registration fee. If looking for additional assistance, please be specific with your needs.

Scholarship applications will be asked to provide the following: name and title & organization, address and phone number; your objective(s) for attending the conference; and specific funding needs. Recommend you submit by January 25, 2017, but scholarships will be considered as they are received.

Judith Ferrel Taggart Founder’s Scholarship

Funded this year by Craig Denisoff Consulting, Davis, CA

The Judith Ferrell Taggart Memorial Scholarship Award was created in honor of the founder of the National Mitigation & Ecosystem Banking Conference and in recognition of Judy’s contributions to the protection of our natural resources over many years of service in the environmental community.

The JFT Fund will provide two scholarships – one for a government and one for a private sector individual. This award recognizes contributions to the overall field of habitat mitigation and conservation. Recipients also demonstrate the ability to collaborate with government and private sector in natural resources to promote environmental conservation (could be environmental scientist, outreach, regulatory, communications field, environmental, journalism, communications, etc.).
