Eddy Scholarship 2024 - Applications Closed

In conjunction with its annual Eddy Awards, River Action is offering Eddy Scholarships to students with a commitment to environmental interests. These scholarships are funded by Janet & Norm Moline and the Joyce & 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” to recognize especially courageous efforts that ‘go against the current’ to get things done that are related to our shared riverway or river communities.

The Eddy Scholarships were created in 2019 to be awarded to students who embody the spirit of the Eddy Awards and who are majoring or minoring in an environment-related field at a college or university or, if currently a senior in high school, are planning to include focus on an environment-related field in their college or university studies.

Three Eddy Scholarships for $1,000 each will be granted based on the character, academic standing, school and community involvement, and environment-related career goals of applicants.

    APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 22, 2024
  • Preference will be given to those attending or planning to attend a college or university in the Quad Cities area.
  • Applicants will be interviewed in the final round of the selection process.
  • Scholarships will be awarded during a ceremony at River Action's Fish & Fire dinner on May 2nd, 2024.
