WEC Awards Two Scholarships in 2014

The WEC Leadership Team has awarded two scholarships for 2013-2014! There was one winner from the LA area, Elizabeth McElroy, and one from San Diego, Megan Morris, a graduate student in Biology at SDSU.

Congratulations and we wish you continued success in your academic pursuits.


The Women's Environmental Council (WEC) supports women who are preparing to pursue careers in the environmental field. As part of our support efforts, we award scholarships to women attending institutes of higher learning in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties. In addition, recipients also receive a complimentary one-year WEC membership in the chapter county where they attend school. Scholarships are awarded at the WEC Annual Meeting in the first quarter of each year.
