The SacShasta Chapter Board has been very active in providing financial support pertaining to wildlife issues. In 2004, the Board agreed that a scholarship program would be of benefit to the wildlife biology academia.
Academic Scholarship Goals
The Chapter’s goals are to assist deserving students with their study, research, presentation training or financial need efforts. Our wish is to invest in worthy students in a manner that will build strong, future TWS members and a professional community. To assist with filling out the application, applicants are referred to the follow definitions and application requirements:
- “Deserving students”—
- Deserving students are those that have shown through their academic performance, research, and related activities that they are fully engaged in preparing for a career in wildlife biology.
- Deserving students are also those that have a track record of taking care of their own economic situations, as much as possible.
- Each applicant is required to provide evidence to support the “deserving student” concept.
- Besides each application package’s grammar and appearance, descriptions of academic performance and any extracurricular biological involvements will be strongly considered by the TWS Scholarship Committee.
- “Investment” concept—
- The Chapter wishes to convey the notion that by providing a scholarship or grant to a student, there are certain expectations.
- First, the grantee is responsible, in the future, to participate in professional programs.
- Specifically, it is hoped that each grantee will belong to TWS and use their knowledge, experience, and professional networks to help students and young professions.
