Established in 1997, this scholarship supports students of outstanding merit who demonstrate a sincere commitment to the study of natural resources and environmental law.
Ms. Adeyemo is particularly interested in the relationship between energy generation, economic development, and environmental protection. She has written,
"The field of energy is of growing interest for me as I pursue my education. I recognize how integral energy is to the economic viability of any country but also realize that society needs to acknowledge the negatives associated with the ways energy has traditionally been acquired and used. It is extremely important that the various industries, governmental agencies along with everyday consumers broaden their conceptualization of energy with concern to future needs and a growing demand."Don C. Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENRL) program, said, "Ms. Adeyemo joins a long list of former recipients of this scholarship. We are delighted she has been recognized with this award, which was generously established by Colonel and Mrs. Laitos in support of the ENRL program."
