Apply now for Eddy Scholarships Deadline March 27

River Action is able to offer Eddy Scholarships to students with environmental interests and commitments thanks to funding from the Joyce and Tony Singh Family Foundation.

River Action launched the Eddy Awards in 2000 to recognize well-designed undertakings and environmental programs with far reaching effects on the health of the river, and cultural programs that celebrate the industry, history or art of the Mississippi River.

The award is named “Eddy” in order to recognize especially courageous efforts that ‘went against the current’ to get things done.

The Eddy Scholarships were created in 2019 to be awarded to students who embody the spirit of the Eddy Awards.

The Eddy Scholarships for $1,000 to $1,500 will be granted based on the character, academic standing, school and community involvement and career goals of applicants.

Preference will be given to those attending a college or university in the Quad Cities area of Iowa and Illinois.

Applicants will be interviewed in the final round of the selection process.

Scholarships will be awarded during a ceremony at the Fish & Fire dinner, date TBD.
