QDMA Offers Student Scholarships to Attend Deer Steward Courses

posted on February 4, 2014

The Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) has announced it will award deserving students with scholarships to attend a Deer Steward course in 2014. High school juniors and seniors, as well as college students, that are interested in a wildlife management career can apply. For each of the in-person Deer Steward Certification Courses offered this year, QDMA will present at least one student with a scholarship to attend free-of-charge.

The Certification Program features three levels of achievement: Deer Steward I, II and III. Level I offers students a comprehensive understanding of herd management, habitat management, hunter management and herd monitoring. Level II includes hands-on field experience and Level III is to be earned through long-term service to QDMA and white-tailed deer.

Applications must be received by March 1, 2014.
