Montgomery, AL -(AmmoLand.com)- If you know a student who has a passion for the outdoors and a desire for a college degree from a great school, check out the University of Montevallo’s President’s Outdoor Scholars Program.
This program – the only one in the nation like it – provides scholarships to students who have a passion for wildlife and conservation. Students can earn their degree while taking an active role in preserving our state’s natural resources and learning through outdoor classroom experiences. Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association is proud to be a partner in this unique effort.
Current and future students may receive scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 per year for four years as long as they maintain a 2.5 grade point average.
The program’s website says, “Scholarships are made available through the UM Foundation for students who have distinguished accomplishment in outdoor sports and demonstrated a personal commitment to conservation.”
This program “serves to provide scholarships for non-traditional students as well as first-generation college students.”
In its first year, the President’s Outdoor Scholars Program awarded more than $20,500 to eight students and funded several experimental learning opportunities, including a redfish fishing trip to Louisiana and a quail hunt in the Alabama Black Belt’s Soggy Bottom Lodge in Linden.
