1) ARE YOU VEGAN/VEGETARIAN AND HEADING OFF TO COLLEGE? APPLY FOR THE VRG SCHOLARSHIPS: TWO $5,000 SCHOLARSHIPS AND ONE $10,000 SCHOLARSHIP

Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, The Vegetarian Resource Group each year will award $20,000 in college scholarship money to graduating U.S. high school students who have promoted veganism/vegetarianism in their schools and/or communities. Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who do not use other animal products such as dairy or eggs.

One award of $10,000 and two awards of $5,000 will be given. Entries may only be sent by students graduating from high school in spring 2016. Deadline is February 20, 2016. We will accept applications postmarked on or before February 20, 2016. Early submission is encouraged.

Applicants will be judged on having shown compassion, courage, and a strong commitment to promoting a peaceful world through a veggie diet/lifestyle. Payment will be made to the student's college (U.S. based only). Winners of the scholarships give permission to release their names to the media. Applications and essays become property of The Vegetarian Resource Group. We may ask finalists for more information. Scholarship winners are contacted by e-mail or telephone. Please look at your e-mail.

2) THE VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP INTERNSHIPS

Responsibilities for internships depend on background, major if in college, and interest of applicant. Tasks may include research, writing, and/or community outreach. Internships are especially helpful for students working towards journalism, English, and nutrition degrees. Business majors can obtain experience related to the business aspects of a non-profit organization. Activists can learn new skills and gain a broader knowledge, as well as share their expertise. Positions are open throughout the year for all ages (including high school students living in Baltimore). Let us know if you need credit for high school volunteer or service learning work or college credit, plus the amount of hours you need. Most internships are unpaid. If you would like to apply for a VRG internship, please email a resume, writing sample, and cover letter detailing your interests, skills, goals, and vegetarian knowledge to vrg@vrg.org.

Eleanor Wolff Scholarship

4) VRG’S 34TH ANNUAL PRE-THANKSGIVING VEGAN POTLUCK DINNER

VRG’s 34th Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Vegan Potluck Dinner took place at the North Baltimore Mennonite Church on November 22nd. While I helped some of VRG’s amazing volunteers set up, a stream of people trickled in, eventually growing to a crowd of over 120 people. With the event being a potluck, the tables overflowed with vegan dishes brought by generous visitors. Every dish I tasted was delicious: mashed sweet potatoes, stuffing, chili, vegan cheese dip, sushi, pumpkin pie, and pralines made up just a fraction of what was served that afternoon.

Although food was definitely a highlight of the event, the potluck was also an interesting learning experience. VRG staff members updated the audience on VRG’s new and exciting projects, and they stimulated discussion of food labels, organic products, sustainability, and more. I had the opportunity to share with everyone some of my experiences as an intern at VRG and as a vegan adolescent, which I hope was helpful for any teenagers in attendance who were interested in an internship at VRG. Many who came to the potluck were longtime vegans, but there were also a couple quite new to veganism. I had eye-opening conversations with people of different ages and backgrounds on a number of topics having to do with current news in the world of nutrition, veganism, and vegetarianism. What stood out to me the most as I spoke to the attendees was the apparent sense of community and support for VRG and the vegan movement, as well as the dedication to health, the planet, and ethically conscious lifestyles. I am definitely coming to VRG’s 35th Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Vegan Potluck next year!

If you would like to help organize the potluck next year, please contact Megan at meganm@vrg.org. For more information about VRG internships, see

8) UPDATE FROM 2015 VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP SCHOLARSHIP WINNER

The Vegetarian Resource Group 2015 scholarship winner Chloe Falkenheim reported on her first semester in college.

"The first semester of college has gone very well! My courses are Environmental Studies, Principles of Economics, and Humans and Other Animals (a first-year seminar). I have been doing well in school and have written many papers in my seminar advocating for vegetarian diets.

I am in a vegetarian and mostly vegan food co-op, an organization where students share responsibility in cooking and cleaning meals. I am working with a group on campus called Real Food Oberlin, an organization committed to increasing Oberlin's percentage of sustainable, healthy, humane, fair food purchased. The Oberlin campus is not very aware of food-related issues, so I came up with the idea to hold events in all the freshman dorms to educate students. I met with dining services, Residential Education, and the freshman RAs to organize these events. In the events, we gave out local apples and crackers and Hampton Creek's Just Cookies (completely vegan cookies) and gave 15-minute workshops on food justice. 48 students went through our workshops the first weekend we held them in the first freshman dorm. We are holding another event this weekend in another dorm. I am also working with Hampton Creek to replace many products in the Oberlin dining hall with their products.

Oberlin has a winter term during the month of January where students can work on whatever project they choose. This winter term I will be interning at an company called Vaute Couture, which makes vegan and eco-friendly clothing. Through VegYouth, we held an online chat to help teens with activism and have had approximately 15 new members join the alliance."

Congratulations to Chloe for winning a Vegetarian Resource Group scholarship and continuing her activism.

Deadline for the 2016 college scholarships for current high school seniors February 20, 2016. See details on applying at:
