Overview:

In the year 2000 Bill and Ellen Carter, founders of Carter’s Country Outdoor Stores headquartered in Spring, Texas, established the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Texas. The Carters, also longtime owners of the Sombrerito Ranch in Webb County, Apache Springs Ranch in Kerr County and Cotton Mesa Ranch in southeast Colorado, felt that one way to help insure that firearms ownership, hunting and wildlife conservation will be around for future generations was to help young students to get an education and pursue a career in the outdoor field.


The primary mission of the foundation is to award scholarships to assist high school graduates and college students who are studying to pursue careers in the outdoor field, be it wildlife or agriculture.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
