In the past, individuals like Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson possessed the skills needed to excel in their respective professions, but they also possessed something more: the courage and the vision to think afresh about why and how to protect our wild lands, and the ability to communicate those ideas effectively to others.

If you are a graduate student and think you have these skills, we welcome you to apply for the Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship.

This scholarship was created in honor of Gloria Barron, a dedicated educator and tireless advocate for wilderness protection. 

The Gloria Barron Scholarship seeks to encourage individuals who have the potential to make a significant positive difference in the long-term protection of wilderness in the United States. 

We encourage proposals regarding a variety of topics relating to wilderness conservation.

The application deadline is March 31, 2014.
