Overview:

The Sac­Shasta Chapter Board has been very active in providing workshops and conferences pertaining to wildlife issues. In 2004, the Board agreed that a scholarship/grant program would be of benefit to the wildlife biology profession. 

Travel scholarships are for wildlife students to help defray the costs for attending conferences. The program is for both undergraduates and graduate students attending a college within our Chapter boundaries. These can be applied for any time of year, but preferably 2 months prior to the conference.

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.

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