SAVE THE FROGS! is pleased to offer scholarships to dedicated environmental conservationists with financial needs. Scholarships cover the entire cost of SAVE THE FROGS! Membership, giving the recipient access to the SAVE THE FROGS! Membership Site, the SAVE THE FROGS! Community and a variety of educational resources and amphibious offerings available exclusively to members.
SAVE THE FROGS! Scholarships serve two primary purposes:
(1) To enable scholarship recipients to improve their abilities to protect amphibians and otherwise assist environmental conservation efforts; and
(2) To increase the number of people on the planet actively engaged in SAVE THE FROGS! amphibian conservation efforts.
SAVE THE FROGS! Scholarship Recipients receive SAVE THE FROGS! Membership at no cost. Benefits include:
- Access to our monthly SAVE THE FROGS! Webinars in which amphibian experts from around the world give presentations to our members about an important conservation topic of their choice.
- Access to the SAVE THE FROGS! Membership Site, which holds an array of educational materials related to amphibian conservation. We built the site in late 2018 and are regularly adding new materials to it so that it quickly becomes an invaluable archive to any dedicated amphibian conservationist.
- Access to our monthly online SAVE THE FROGS! Members Open Discussions, in which members can connect and seek advice on their current projects directly from me and other amphibian experts.
- Access to the monthly SAVE THE FROGS! Scholars Meeting intended specifically for Scholarship recipients to gather online and discuss their current amphibian projects and how to make the most of this one of a kind community of amphibian enthusiasts and protectors.
How Scholarships Are Made Possible
These scholarships are made possible by the dues paying members of SAVE THE FROGS!. Specifically, we provide scholarships in exact accordance with the number of dues paying members we have. Thus the more dues paying members we have, the more scholarships we can disburse. As such, if you are reading this and you can afford to pay for a membership, we strongly encourage you to do so: you will not only be acquiring a multitude of benefits for yourself, you will also enable us to deliver one of these scholarships to an amphibian conservationist with financial needs.
If you don’t require a full scholarship but still would like some financial assistance for your membership, please note that we offer 50% discounts to full-time students and teachers, and employees of environmental nonprofits.
“SAVE THE FROGS! matters because of the importance of frogs in a variety of ecosystems. Membership is another way I can have an impact.”
