Allamakee County Conservation Foundation to offer scholarships to area high school seniors

The Allamakee County Conservation Foundation (ACCF) is offering a scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors from an Allamakee County high school who will be attending a college or university pursuing a degree in natural resources or a related field. One $500 scholarship will be offered to a senior from each of the school districts - Postville, Allamakee and Eastern Allamakee - in Allamakee County.

Students who would like to apply for the scholarship are encouraged to visit or the Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center in Lansing for an application. Applications will be accepted until April 1 of this year and recipients will be notified by May 1.

The ACCF scholarship is funded through an endowment with the Allamakee County Community Foundation and the Foundation of Greater Dubuque to promote the Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center, conservation management and environmental education opportunities in Allamakee County.
