|Application Form:||Application Form|
|Process:||Recommended by Engineering|
|Description:||Granted to returning SSDE students who are normally resident in Canada, and have a demonstrated interest in protecting the Island environment through the development of sustainable design initiatives; number of scholarships available will be determined by the available expenditure each year (minimum $1,000 each).|
|Background:||Founded in 1981, Parks and People Association Inc. (the Association) is a non-profit, charitable organization that promotes awareness, appreciation and conservation of the National Park and National Historic Sites of Prince Edward Island. Its members have supported conservation initiatives, created fun recreational opportunities and celebrated Prince Edward Island?s cultural and natural heritage. These activities have been directly supported by proceeds from Parks and People retail outlets in Cavendish - Nature Store, Green Gables - Butter Churn Cafe, Greenwich Interpretation Centre - Boutique, and Province House - Gift Shop. In 2017 the directors of the Association recognized that the life of the Association was coming to an end with a reduced membership base and much of what they had set out to do achieved. The Association then decided to use the remaining funds they had raised to support scholarships at the University of Prince Edward Island and Holland College. This has been achieved at UPEI through the establishment of the Parks and People Association Scholarships Endowment. This endowed fund will provide support in perpetuity to UPEI students who have an expressed interest in the environment and sustainable design. Criteria: Beginning in academic year 2018/19, these scholarships will be granted to returning UPEI students who are normally resident in Canada, have a demonstrated interest in protecting the Island environment through the development of sustainable design initiatives, and are a student in the School of Sustainable Design Engineering (SSDE) program. Further criteria may be determined by the selection committee if required. The successful recipients will be recommended by the Associate Dean of the School of Sustainable Design Engineering in consultation with SSDE faculty and approved by the Senate Committee on Scholarships and Awards.|
