Early Career Professional Scholarships

1.  Early Career Professional Scholarships are available to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting. Five scholarships valued at $500 each are available for Western Section members who have a relevant Bachelor’s Degree but are unemployed, underemployed, or employed outside of the wildlife profession.   We know it’s hard to land that permanent full-time position, and we want to help you advance your career by joining us and the rest of your colleagues at the 2018 Annual Meeting!  Registration, the Welcome Reception, the Student Professional Breakfast (good networking for all of us!), and the Breakfast Roundtable are included in the scholarship. You have the freedom to use the remaining scholarship value to cover the costs that fit your needs, whether it’s travel, lodging, or attending other fee-based Annual Meeting events.  Link to Early Career Professional Scholarship Application  Applications Due by December 1, 2017
