"New" Scholarship Program ~

The Catoctin Group of the Maryland State Sierra Club Chapter is proud to sponsor the Maryland Sierra Club John Muir Scholarship Program for High School Seniors enrolled in the Frederick County Catoctin High School Environmental and Conservation Academy.


The mission of our scholarship program is to assist in the financial support of a first year student to a college or university of their choice in their educational pursuit of a degree preparing them for a life time of protecting the wild places on earth, practicing and promoting the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources, educating and enlisting humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment, and using all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

Why the Sierra Club

Founded in 1892 by naturalist and writer John Muir, the Sierra Club is the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.  The Maryland Sierra Club Chapter and local Sierra Club groups work, on your behalf, for wildlife and natural resource conservation efforts as well as inform and educate the public on  the most important environmental issues of our time.

About: The Catoctin Group

The Sierra Club ~ Catoctin Group encompasses Carroll, Frederick and Washington Counties in Maryland. The geography of the region and the area these counties cover offers many opportunities to explore nature. But it presents a challenge to organizing our over 1,000 members, as it can take up to an hour to travel from Carroll and Washington counties to Frederick City, our historically central meeting place.
