McHenry Hudson River Valley Awards
McHenry Hudson River Valley Awards are grants awarded each year to four
exceptional young leaders in the fields of environmental conservation, historic
preservation, the arts, and tourism. The awards, of up to $5,000 each, provide financial support for
undergraduate and graduate students to pair with nonprofit organizations and
execute exemplary projects in the Hudson River Valley.
In addition to the $5,000 awarded to McHenry Recipients,
The Open Space Institute also awards $1,000 to their sponsoring organizations
for supplementary expenses.
McHenry Hudson River Valley Awards were created in 2007 to honor the extensive
contributions of environmental philanthropist and conservationist, Barnabas
McHenry. Barney is passionate about preserving the scenic and
environmental importance of the Hudson River Valley, celebrating its vibrant
historical, artistic, and cultural resources, and supporting young leaders who
embody this same passion.
