CansCount.org Recycling Scholarship
Deadline: January 13
Would you like to receive a scholarship and help save the world at the same time? If so, the CansCount.org recycling scholarship might be the award for you. This award is open to international students from around the world, between the ages of 13 and 25 who will be studying inside the US.
The winner will be selected based upon not only their recycling efforts, but also on their essay in response to the following:
“How your recycling efforts have influenced your community.”
It takes an aluminum can about 400 years to break down naturally. If a can is recycled, it only takes about 60 days before it is back on a grocery store shelf again. This award is sponsored by canscount.org and in efforts to promote the positive effects of recycling.
Students have until January 13 to save and collect as many cans as possible to be recycled. The winner of this scholarship will be awarded a $500.00 cash prize. If you would like further information on how to apply for the CansCount.org recycling scholarship, you can find out more here.
