General Scholarship Fund
Established many years ago by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and The Conservation Fund, our Supporters join them each year to continue this important effort.
Full and partial scholarships are available with priority given to state and tribal entities, but also open to nonprofits and academia who are unable to cover their costs of participation. The Fund typically provides for the registration fee. If looking for additional assistance, please be specific with your needs.
Scholarship applications will be asked to provide the following: name and title & organization, address and phone number; your objective(s) for attending the conference; and specific funding needs. Recommend you submit by January 23, 2019, but scholarships will be considered as they are received should funds remain available.
