The Ernest Manchester family, along with the Bradford County Conservation District, would like to congratulate two Bradford County college students upon receiving the Ernest Manchester Scholarship. 

Brooke Ostrander, a Troy resident, is a senior at Penn State and studying Ag extension education. Megan Brown is a senior at Mansfield University studying biology and watershed management. 

Representing the Manchester family are Rich Manchester, along with his wife Stephanie and his sisters Fay Young and Deb Young. 

The Manchester Scholarship was created in 1991 as a memorial for Ernest Manchester who was a devoted supporter of conservation of Bradford County’s natural resources. The memorial was set up by the family under the administration of the Conservation District, with the mission of supporting County college students that pursue degrees in natural resource management, conservation, agriculture or other related fields.  

“It’s an investment in our youth and community to be better able to address future natural resource decisions,” says the Manchester family. 

The scholarship is available to any Bradford County college student that is in their junior or senior year if pursuing a bachelor’s degree, or the second year of an associate degree. Applications for the scholarship are always available through the Conservation District office or online at and are accepted in the fall of each year.
