The Cipriano Keeping It Green Foundation promotes ecological sustainability and environmental stewardship of landscaping and swimming pool development through the study, development, preservation and promotion of landscape architecture and horticulture. We are committed to increasing public awareness through workshops and to supporting the future of the green industry through scholarships and internships. By furthering interest in and awareness of the environment, the foundation encourages practices that foster conservation, family togetherness and healthy living.
Students applying to or already in attendance at Rutgers University are eligible for scholarships based on their scholastic record, stewardship abilities and their sincerity in pursuing employment in the green industry. The foundation will award 4, $2,500 scholarships annually to the most deserving students.
Information helps us to make better choices and it is primarily through information and education that the Cipriano Keeping It Green Foundation plans to encourage environmental stewardship in its community. Opportunity is also important, especially where the younger generation is concerned. For that reason we will sponsor internships for students at all grade levels.
On behalf of everyone at Cipriano Landscape Design & Custom Pools and The Keeping It Green Foundation we would just like to congratulate all of the recipients of the scholarship money for 2008!
