About this funder:



The Webster Groves Nature Study Society is pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for the Menke Scholarship to Improve Wildlife Habitat. The Menke scholarship honors Don and Nell Menke, long-term members of WGNSS, and lifelong birders/wildflower experts, and their son, David Menke, a wildlife park ranger all his professional life.
The scholarship’s goal is to increase and improve wildlife habitat in Missouri by planting, protecting, managing, publicizing, and in various other ways demonstrating specific habitat improvements for fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, plants or invertebrates. The scholarship awards up to $2,000 for one year.

Recipients may work with, or intern with conservation programs. 

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


  • Applicants typically major in nature study (e.g. biology, ecology, botany, forestry, conservation), but meeting the scholarship’s goals is more important than the major field itself (e.g. applications from non-nature study fields are accepted).
  • Results must improve wildlife habitat in Missouri.


  • The scholarship will not support projects that may harm or endanger wildlife, including attaching or implanting objects.
  • The scholarship funds cannot be used to pay overhead to any institution.
