The North Carolina Composting Council (NCCC) for the second year in a row is generously funding a CCREF/NCCC Young Investigator Scholarship. This scholarship is for college students studying at a college or university in North Carolina. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is July 31, 2018. The goal of this scholarship is to bring assistance and attention to emerging young professionals in the field of compost research and to spark interest in the future of the composting industry.
Gary Gittere, board president of NCCC, explained why the chapter decided to support this scholarship program working with CCREF. “The NC Composting Council is dedicated to the many benefits of education and is committed to providing continual support to our state universities and colleges. The NCCC will support the US Composting Council and its CCREF Young Investigator Scholarship program, by funding a $2500.00 scholarship for all North Carolina Colleges and Universities, for the 2nd year in a row. We look forward to working with the 2018 recipient, helping him or her broaden the many benefits of composting and the use of compost as a soil amendment.”
