Ducks Unlimited (DU) launched its inaugural national scholarship program offering graduating high school seniors who are DU members the opportunity to advance their education. The application deadline has been extended until March 1, 2018, to provide more students with the opportunity to apply for a scholarship.
DU will annually award 61, one-time scholarships to eligible applicants at the following levels:
– 50 Varsity Scholarships at $500 each
– 10 Conservation Scholarships at $1,000 each
– 1 National Scholarship of $10,000
The online application will now close on March 1, 2018. Applicants will need to provide their high school transcript, DU member/volunteer history, a list of any service or academic awards received and a letter of recommendation highlighting your involvement with DU and commitment to conservation. In addition, applicants will be required to write a 300-word essay describing their most memorable outdoor experience and how it has impacted their view on conservation. All applications will be reviewed by DU’s National Scholarship Selection Committee and recipients will be chosen based on the merits of those submissions.
The list of national scholarship recipients will be sent to all applicants by April 15, 2018 with awarded checks released to the student’s college or university prior to registration. Recipients will be recognized in Ducks Unlimited magazine, and the national scholarship winner will be announced at the DU National Convention.
