Montana Wildlife Federation & Tawney Conservation Endowment Offers Scholarships
Helena, Montana –-(Ammoland.com)- Are you committed to conserving and perpetuating our hunting, wildlife and outdoor heritage?
The ranks of hunters and anglers are shrinking, so it is important that WE ALL do our parts to engage future hunters, fishers, and conservation leaders.
Here’s an opportunity to fund your own conservation projects and youth programs!!!
Montana Wildlife Federation and Phil Tawney Hunters Conservation Endowment Board is offering scholarships and grants. Tawney grants and scholarships help educate, promote, and inform the general public about hunting ethics, fair chase, and core values that perpetuate efforts to conserve habitat and wildlife and stimulate recruitment, mentoring, and involvement of youth in hunting and conservation activities.”
Established in 1998, the endowment honors the late Phil Tawney, a fourth generation Montanan, lifetime sportsman and conservation leader reflecting his passion and commitment to protecting Montana’s fish and wildlife, vulnerable habitat, and the future of hunting. MWF and Tawney Endowment offer a one-year ‘Grant’ of $500 to $5,000 to any Montana 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization for projects that emphasize: 1.) the interface between hunting and wildlife management, especially issues that affect developing youth values; 2.) strategies to promote environmentally healthy wildlife habitat; 3.) public policy changes to improve conservation habitat; 4.) strategies to improve and promote hunting ethics, fair chase, values, and safety; and 5.) activities to stimulate the recruitment, mentoring and involvement of youth in hunting and conservation activities. Doesn’t this sound like you?
