FOLAR ENVIRONMENTAL SCHOLARSHIP

SUPPORTING THE NEXT GENERATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS

Established in 2016 by long-time FOLAR supporters, Victor and Reiko Liu, the FOLAR Environmental Stewardship Scholarship awards $1,000 to a student from the Tri-Cities region of Virginia. Priority is given to students who are interested in pursuing an environmental-related career or have extracurricular participation in an environmental service program.

This permanently endowed scholarship is administered by John Randolph Foundation, the community foundation of the Tri-Cities region. FOLAR also partners with John Randolph Foundation through their grant programs to improve public access for outdoor activities trail runs/walks, paddling, bicycling on the Appomattox River Trail, and to keep our shorelines and drinking water clean by restoring native plants and riparian buffers.
