This scholarship is for promising youth pursuing post-secondary studies in the environmental field. The award is named after Mr. Gary Griffin, a local who pioneered a path to recovery on the Petitcodiac River. Mr. Griffin voluntarily manned a fish trap three times a day, for twenty years, to collect the necessary data proving that the causeway decimated local fish populations.
Successful applicants will reside and attend high school within the Petitcodiac River watershed boundaries (Moncton, Dieppe, Riverview, Salisbury, Petitcodiac). We place an emphasis on passion for conservation, evident efforts to make the world a better place, and financial need. Students must be pursuing a post-secondary education in the environmental sciences, some of which can include biology, forestry, toxicology, wildlife science, natural resource management, and environmental studies.
