The Foundation’s Ed Stegner Natural Resource Scholarships were established to provide major financial aid to encourage and assist students in five areas of natural resource management: Fisheries, Forestry, Wildlife, Parks and Recreation and Soil and Water conservation. Funding for this scholarship program was provided to the Foundation by Ed Stegner of Pilot Grove, Missouri. A Master Conservationist, Stegner was the former executive director of the Conservation Federation of Missouri, and was especially known for his leadership role in the passage of the 1/8th of 1% conservation sales tax to fund the Conservation Department’s expanded program, Design for Conservation.
The Foundation’s Ed Stegner Natural Resource Scholarships are a joint venture with the professional societies in the five different resource areas – i.e., the Missouri chapters of the Wildlife Society, American Fisheries Society and the Society of American Foresters, Missouri Parks and Recreation Association and the Show-Me Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society. These groups provide selection committees that pick the recipients in the respective categories. Once selected, the scholarship recipients are notified and each is presented a check in the amount of $1,000.00.
