Houston Safari Club is accepting scholarship applications from undergraduate and graduate students for the HSC Dan L. Duncan Scholarship Program. Scholarships will be given in the amount of $5,000 each for students who meet the program’s criteria.
Every year, HSC in conjunction with its charitable arm the American Conservation and Education Society, proudly awards an average of 25 scholarships to students currently involved in the study of Wildlife Management and/or Range Management. Since the program’s inception in 1999, over 350 scholarships have been awarded to well-deserving students, totaling more than 1.1 million dollars.
The HSC Dan L. Duncan Scholarship Program is recognized as one of the best programs not only in Texas, but in the entire country. The student must be a hunter, as well as have a pro-hunting viewpoint towards wildlife and land management. They also must have a 3.0 grade point average and qualify as a junior at the time of application. Many of the past scholarship recipient winners are now employed across the nation in various state, federal, private, NGO and land management positions.
“Our program is truly making a difference in the wildlife and range management programs and the way they are viewed,” said Dan L. Duncan Scholarship Selection Committee Chairman Gary Rose.
The HSC scholarship program is open to students attending Texas universities with wildlife and range management programs including Texas Tech University, Sul Ross State University, San Angelo State University, Tarleton State University, Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas State University, Texas A&M University or Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Those interested in applying for a scholarship can find the criteria details on the HSC website at www.houstonsafariclub.org/giving-back/scholarships/. The application deadline is June 1.
