The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt scholarship application will be open February 15 – March 15, 2021.
This year’s hunt will be held at the Ranch at Ucross from October 7-10.
Hunters of all skill levels are welcome, including first-time hunters!
Selections will include both seasoned and aspiring hunters to create pairings of mentors and mentees.
Each participant is responsible for travel to and from the event. However, we will facilitate ride shares if possible. If you are selected to receive a scholarship to the hunt, a deposit will be required. ($200 for WY residents and $350 for out of state.) This deposit is FULLY refundable when you arrive at the hunt! It helps cover the cost of your hunting license, which we can’t recover if you do not attend. Payment plans are available, and we will work with you if you are selected to make sure this cost does not prevent you from attending.
Submission includes a 300-word essay on why you would like to participate in the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt what you hope to gain from this experience.
Those selected to receive a scholarship to the hunt will be notified starting in May.
WYWF created the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt in 2013 when it became the first all-women’s pronghorn hunt in the nation. The hunt provides mentoring opportunities and helps bring awareness to WYWF and our mission to invest in economic self-sufficiency for women and girls of Wyoming.

The Wyoming Women’s Foundation is a priority fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation, which granted out over $11 million to nonprofits across the state in 2019, and over $85 million since its inception in 1989. The Women’s Foundation builds on a permanent endowment that will ensure funding to enhance the lives of women and girls in Wyoming for generations to come. It makes grants to organizations that help Wyoming women and girls attain economic self-sufficiency, creates statewide awareness of the barriers to economic self-sufficiency, and supports systems change to eliminate those barriers.
