Farmington River Coordinating Committee

2012 Scholarship Application

 

The Farmington River Coordinating Committee (FRCC) was established when 14 miles of the upper Farmington River were designated a National Wild & Scenic River on August 26, 1994.  FRCC is comprised of representatives from each of the five towns adjacent to this section of the Farmington River (Barkhamsted, Canton, Colebrook, Hartland, and New Hartford) as well as representatives from the Farmington River Anglers Association, the Farmington River Watershed Association, the Metropolitan District Commission, the CT Department of Environmental Protection, and the National Park Service.  FRCC embodies an important partnership of the riverfront towns and others to provide stewardship of the Farmington River and its upper watershed.  For more information about FRCC, please visit www.farmingtonriver.org.


FRCC intends to award two scholarships in 2012.  The Pat Keener Scholarship and the Nancy Johnson Scholarship are $1,000 awards given to high school graduates or current undergraduates from the five riverfront towns who will be/are attending college to major in environmental science or a related field.  By completing this application, you will be eligible to receive either scholarship.
