The July, 2015, issue of American Hunter magazine covered the history of wildlife conservation in the United States and explained the current North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. The article concluded with mention of a scholarship for women college students majoring in wildlife management/conservation. If you are aware of a female college hopeful considering such a major, let them know that they may be eligible for a partial scholarship in their junior and senior year.  The application can be completed online at http://wwmcs.nra.org/, which includes submitting an essay.
