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.
IslandWood acknowledges that we live and work on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people, who have been stewards of this region's land and waters since time immemorial, and who continue to protect these lands and waters for future generations, as promised by the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, the Treaty of Point No Point of 1855, and the Treaty of Medicine Creek of 1854.
While the majority of our work takes place on Suquamish (suq̀ʷabš) and Duwamish (dxʷdɐwʔabʃ) land, we also conduct programs on the land of the Snohomish (sduhúbʃ), Puyallup (spuyaləpabš), Muckleshoot (buklshuhls), Skokomish (sqoqc’bes), and S’Klallam (nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm) peoples.
