NMEBC Scholarship Fund
Established many years ago by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Scholarship Fund is supported by individual Sponsors along with a contributed portion from all Title Supporters to help support full and partial scholarships to NMEBC.
Priority is given to tribal nations, state and local governments, but is also open to academia and nonprofits – to those who are seeking to learn more about Mitigation and Conservation Banking, In Lieu of Fee programs, and other approaches to the mitigation and conservation of wetlands and streams, species, and related environmental markets.
NMEBC and the funders of this Scholarship Fund understand the important of bringing in diverse perspectives to the dialogue and education that NMEBC provides, and in assisting those new to environmental banking and markets in establishing their own programs to better their community and environment.
The Fund helps those who are unable to cover some or all costs of participation at NMEBC, and typically provides for the registration fee but also considers additional needs based on level of funding available.

Judith F. Taggart Founder’s Award
Created in honor of the founder of NMEBC, Judith Ferrell Taggart (1931-2015), the JFT Award(s) is provided each year in recognition of Judy’s contributions to the conservation and restoration of our natural resources. The JFT Award for NMEBC 2022 will be introduced by the Award Sponsor(s).
Judy led with a balanced approach to education and outreach, convened diverse stakeholders to connect and learn from each other, brought business and government together for the sustained good of the environment and economy, and mentored students and young professionals across geographic and cultural boundaries to be the best at their chosen career.
Judy was an editor and writer, a journalist, college English teacher, entrepreneur and successful business owner in addition to being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. A primary editor of NEPA, Judy also created the first outreach materials on nonpoint source for EPA, helped establish the first watershed conference, American Wetlands Month and Audubon’s America, the North American Lake Management Society and the Terrene Institute, and served as a delegate to the RAMSAR convention among other accomplishments, including the creation of the popular EnviroScape® models throughout the U.S. and abroad.
The JFT Founder’s Award provides for travel and registration for one or more recipients who demonstrate a vision for conservation and restoration of natural resources through collaboration among diverse stakeholders, the importance of government and business working together for the good of the environment and economy, and the value of balance in education and outreach.
