Scholarship Opportunities

Surfrider Bogue Banks Chapter is choosing one globally-minded high school senior from Croatan High School, Swansboro High School, or West Carteret High School to receive a $1,000 scholarship. Applicants are required to have a 3.0 GPA and must be planning on studying the fields of or related to marine biology, environmental science, or another environmentally-centric major. Candidates are asked to submit a video entry showing their passion for the importance of ocean conservation with the quote in mind “With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea.” The video should be accompanied with a one page MLA formatted essay expounding on the ideas presented in the video. The essay, video, and official transcript will be due by March 1, 2017.
