The AMIGOS Centennial Award provides financial support to students who are passionate about service and conservation. Multiple scholarships of $500–$2,500 will be awarded this year to volunteers who are participating in the Colorado: Exploring Conservation in the Rockies Summer Program. These awards are provided by the generosity of the Adobe Employee Community Fund.
Applicants for the AMIGOS Centennial Award must first apply to the Colorado: Exploring Conservation in the Rockies program and be age-eligible to participate in the program.
These awards are open to applicants of all backgrounds. Awards will be granted on a rolling basis until available funds are exhausted. NOTE: Applicants for this award may also be eligible for AMIGOS need-based financial assistance. We encourage volunteers needing financial support to apply for both the Centennial Award as well as our standard financial assistance.
Applications will be reviewed by the AMIGOS Centennial Award committee. The selection of recipients will be based on interest, leadership, and commitment to conservation efforts as demonstrated in the short essay responses on their application.
The AMIGOS Centennial Award application is due within a week of when a volunteer’s program application is submitted. Award applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and students will be notified of their award amount when they are admitted to the program.
Recipients of the award will be required to submit a blog post or video about the impact of their AMIGOS experience after completing the Summer Program.
