Overview:

 The IWLA National Conservation Scholarship program was established in 2005 to promote conservation leadership among future natural resource managers and professionals. 

This scholarship supports undergraduates from recognized conservation or environment-related degree programs. These degree programs may include (but are not limited to) environmental science, natural resource management, forestry, wildlife, fisheries, parks and recreation, range management, and other related sciences such as ecology, biology (conservation/field/marine), geology, hydrology, and zoology. 

The National Conservation Scholarship complements the many scholarships offered annually by IWLA chapters and state divisions.
