Scholarship applications available

The Kilauea Point Natural History Association is now accepting applications for their annual scholarship in honor of Dan Moriarty who was an exceptional environmental educator and conservationist.

One of the main purposes of the scholarship is to foster greater awareness and protection of native Hawaiian ecosystems by supporting the education of students from Hawaii with the hope that they will return to Kauai and further the cause of environmental conservation. The award is applied directly to college expenses.

With this in mind, students who are studying in the fields of botany, biology, zoology, natural history and other related fields such as wildlife management, interpretation, conservation, and environmental education are encouraged to apply

To be eligible for the scholarship, the student must have been a resident of Hawaii within the past 5 years, been accepted or enrolled full time at a four-year college, and maintained a GPA of 3.0 or better.

The application deadline is June 30. Applications and additional information can be obtained at:
