I am the Programs Coordinator for Nature NB (a non-profit organization).


I am contacting guidance counselors to share information about our scholarship fund. If you know of any students who would qualify, I hope you will pass along this information. Details are below.


The Mary Majka Scholarship Fund was established with the intent to further youth engagement with nature and our natural heritage.  This scholarship is open to New Brunswick students from middle school to those attending an undergraduate program. Awards will be granted on a yearly basis ranging from $250 to $1000. Deadline is March 31st.


Two types of scholarships are available:


1) Awarded to a person that is or will be studying in the field of natural sciences with an interest in nature and the environment (awarded as a study scholarship)


2) Awarded to a youth wanting to further their knowledge in the natural sciences (awarded as a contribution to cover specific expenses such as for workshop participation).


More information (and application form) is available on our website:

There are two different types of scholarship applications:

Internal scholarships (green form): This is ONE application for approximately 35 different scholarships that are selected by an internal committee at James M. Hill. Students will check off the scholarships that they qualify for and only submit additional information when a specific scholarship requests it. Transcripts are printed for these at the office so there is no need to request one. This document is copied on green paper in the guidance office and must be picked up there. Please note: DO NOT PUT THESE APPLICATIONS AND DOCUMENTS IN ENVELOPES! Simply give it to the office and it will be filed until the selection committee meets. Here is a copy of the internal application (do not print, pick it up in the guidance department):


External Scholarships (found alphabetically in the filing cabinet): These are all separate scholarships which have different deadlines and request different information depending on the award. There is a printable list (attached - but also available in the guidance department) which lists the criteria for each separate application. Look at the scholarships you qualify for and take only those applications. Each separate application will have instructions on what to send and where to send it but there are a few on this list which are turned into the office at James M. Hill (ie. the Scott Bowes Memorial Scholarship).

Any scholarships that become available from now on will be posted to this site AND emailed to the 2016 Grad list.


Use this link to apply:


The scholarship is awarded each year to women and men entering their first year in a non-traditional training program at a New Brunswick college.


Women or men accepted or wait listed into an eligible program of study.


The Gender Equality Scholarship is part of the Women's Equality Branch of the Province of New Brunswick.

The Scholarship Program is intended to encourage women and men, entering their first year at a New Brunswick college, to seek a non-traditional career where participation to date by women and men in these fields has been limited.

Any occupations in which women or men make up less than 25% of the total workforce is considered "non-traditional".

Scholarships of equal value up to a maximum of $2,000 will be awarded.

Please read the guidelines for eligibility and for selection criteria.

DEADLINE: Applications must be submitted no later than May 31 of each year for fall sessions and November 30 for winter sessions.
