Jelks Scholarships

Download the Application

Scholarships for the Public Interest Environmental Conference are made possible by a generous donation from the Jelks Family Foundation. The scholarship will cover the registration fee for the conference and banquet (note: the scholarship does not cover additional fees associated with the conference, such as travel costs). The scholarship is open to any attendee, but preference is given towards students. Previous scholarship recipients may also apply, but preference is given to those who have not been awarded the scholarship in the past.

To apply, fill out the application and submit it to the PIEC Registration Chair, Arielle Jeter, at The deadline for applications to be submitted is January 15, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to be considered for the Jelks Scholarship, you MUST apply for the scholarship PRIOR to registering for the conference. We cannot provide reimbursements for scholarship recipients who have already registered for the conference. If you want to be considered for the Jelks Scholarship, you must complete your application FIRST. If selected, we will register you for the conference. If you register and pay for the conference, you will no longer be eligible for the Jelks Scholarship.
