Do you know a graduation high school student in the Teton Regional Land Trust service area that is interested in environmental studies? Make sure they know about TRLT's Michael B. Whitfield Scholarship!
The Teton Regional Land Trust would like to announce the opening of the Michael B. Whitfield Scholarship for the 2013- 2014 school year.
In 2007, The Teton Regional Land Trust created the scholarship in honor of Michael B. Whitfield who helped found the organization in 1990 and served as its Executive director for 18 years. Michael’s passion for and commitment to land conservation initially in Teton Valley, then throughout the Upper Snake River Watershed, has been instrumental in the preservation of key landscapes in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
Candidates must be graduating seniors who live in the Teton Regional Land Trust service area (see attached map). These counties include Bonneville, Clark, Fremont, Jefferson, Madison, Teton and parts of Bingham, Butte, Caribou, and Lemhi in Idaho and Teton County, Wyoming west of the Tetons. Candidates must show an intention to pursue a major course of study in college or vocational school in the environmental sciences, biology, ecology, environmental planning or policy, agriculture, or a related field. Candidates must have a grade point average of at least 3 (out of 4). Applications are due April 4th, 2014.
Thank you Orvis for featuring the preservation and restoration work we do along the Henry's Fork, Teton and South Fork of the Snake Rivers!
