Tesomas Conservation Foundation

Scholarship Program

As part of our mission to promote environmental education and sustainable conservation practices at summer camps in Wisconsin, the Tesomas Conservation Foundation is pleased to offer scholarships of $250 and up. With this program, we hope to support past and present employees of summer camps as they pursue postsecondary education in natural resources and environmental studies.

Scholarships will be disbursed in the amount of $250 and up, made available to applicants who meet the criteria below. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however awards are typically granted at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. Priority will be given to applicants who are most likely to use their education to inform and inspire others.

"I hope to use the skills I

learn in college to help

manage and share the beauty of public lands for

generations to come."
