ABOUT THE ROBERT P. KARR SCHOLARSHIP

This annual scholarship awards five students $20,000 towards their studies in the IslandWood Graduate Program in Education for Environment and Community. Established in memory of Robert P. Karr, the scholarship reflects his commitment to contributing to the much-needed diversity of the environmental education field by supporting teacher candidates who are BIPOC, first generation college graduates, or who demonstrate financial need, prioritized in that order.
