Subject: GLIN==> Scholarships - National Restoration Conference

One of the nation's premier events for leaders of freshwater and marine restoration efforts is taking place in New Orleans December 9 - 13. The organization sponsoring the conference, Restore America's Estuaries, has a limited number of scholarships remaining for students and representatives of non-profit groups. Some of the scholarship fund is earmarked for representatives from the Great Lakes region. I highly recommend this conference to anyone engaged in restoration programs and activities from our region. Below is information about the scholarships.

Scholarships will be awarded based on demonstrated need. Staff and volunteers of non-profit organizations and students are especially encouraged to apply.
