Scholarship Opportunities

The Professional Improvement Committee coordinates a Member Training Scholarship Program. Scholarships are available with the goal of helping land conservation department staff and committee members achieve their professional improvement and leadership goals.  They are designed to help cover the expenses of WI Land + Water members who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend workshops, conferences, and other training opportunities. 

The scholarships are funded in part by proceeds from the annual raffle and provide a means to give back to its members, while at the same time benefiting individuals and counties by allowing supervisors and employees to improve their conservation knowledge, skills, and abilities.
