USDA Rural Community Conference Scholarships and More
YOU get a scholarship…And YOU get a scholarship!! We are thrilled to announce that CRA is able to offer a significant number of scholarships this year thanks to funding from the US Department of Agriculture Rural Solid Waste Management Grants, the CRA’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action Plan, South Carolina License Plate Fund, and the North Carolina Division of Environmental Assistance & Customer Service local government scholarships. Applicants are welcome to apply from any sector as are members of the general public, provided that they work or provide services in the Carolinas. Please submit an application on our website and we will direct your scholarship to the appropriate review committee.
There are four categories of scholarship funding available, and you may put your hat in the ring for more than one if you qualify (only one scholarship awarded per person):
- USDA Rural and Small Community Scholarships
- Minority Owned Business, Women Owned Business, and Minority Serving Institutions
- SC Recycling License Plate Fund
- NC DEACS Local Government Scholarships
You do not have to be a CRA member to apply for a scholarship; this is a tremendous opportunity to get to know our organization. Those of you who know us well, we encourage you to share this funding opportunity far and wide among your contacts so that we can bring more people into the CRA family from the comfort of their desk chair.
