Scholarships & Education Credits

Thanks to the generous help of our supporters, we are pleased to offer two scholarship options to attend NMEBC 2019. You can contribute to this effort by becoming a “Title Supporter” or “Friend.”

The General Fund and the Judith F. Taggart Founder’s Scholarship
Apply for one or both.

General Scholarship Fund

Established many years ago by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and The Conservation Fund, our Supporters join them each year to continue this important effort.

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. The Fund typically provides for the 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 23, 2019, but scholarships will be considered as they are received should funds remain available.

Thanks to EPA and all our Title Supporters and Friends for your support of scholarships!

Judith Ferrell Taggart Memorial Scholarship

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 a scholarship to a journalist, government employee, or private sector individual. This award recognizes contributions to the overall field of habitat mitigation and conservation. Recipients should demonstrate the ability to collaborate with government and private sector in natural resources to promote environmental conservation (could be journalism, communications, environmental scientist, outreach, regulatory, etc.).
