We only have one planet.
With the climate crisis becoming progressively worse, the solutions will come from a mix of innovation and policy change -- both of which will be continuous uphill battles for the world to navigate.
Policy will be an essential part of this delicate equation, especially considering the global nature of the issue and that an overwhelming majority of emissions come from a small subset of corporations.
This scholarship is here to support students that are either studying or planning to study environmental policy. In order to qualify for this scholarship, please write a short 500-word essay on how you think environmental policy will evolve over the coming years.
This scholarship is part of a 12-part, AMPLIFY Scholarship Series, spanning topics including women in tech, continuous learning, environmental science, and more. These scholarships are announced quarterly and awarded monthly throughout 2021. Follow along here!
What are you currently studying or do you hope to study that relates to environmental policy? What are some innovative policy changes that you think could help curb the climate crisis? Please be as specific as possible!

The winner will be publicly announced on Sep 30, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
