Monroe Township Conservation Club - Jack Cronin Scholarship

 In September 1941, the late Jack Cronin was named president of the newly formed Monroe Township Conservation Club - a position he held for many years. Jack believed in continuing education and the wise use of natural resources. 
 
As a way to remember the leadership and guidance Jack provided to our club and the area surrounding the MTCC, our club has established a scholarship for high school and college students in his honor. This scholarship can be used for books, tuition, lab fees or any cost related to continuing education ­whether it is in a traditional college setting or post-secondary vocational training.
 
The scholarship is open to ALL students in east central Indiana. The only requirement is that the student cannot have received a Jack Cronin scholarship in the previous year. 
 
Enclosed you will find a copy of the application form and the requirements for the 500 word (minimum)  essay to accompany the application.  This application can be used for any year, as long as it is postmarked by March 31, 2020. Feel free to make additional copies of this application if you have multiple students interested.
 
Applicants do not have to be affiliated with MTCC, nor do they have to be a hunter or involved in shooting sports to qualify. All essays are read and ranked by a committee of members of a committee formed for the sole purpose of objectively evaluating the content of the writing of the student.
