DLA Scholarships: Intention

With the hope of promoting a strong and positive concern for the environment, the Deer Lake Association can, when funds are available, donate a scholarship to a graduating student from a local area high school who has been accepted at a college or technical school for a 2 or 4 year program. The scholarship will be given to a male or female who has a strong interest in environmental preservation and plans to major in a field of conservation or environmental science.
