GLYNDON, Minn. — The Minnesota Prairie Chicken Society is offering a $1,000 scholarship available to college students who have completed at least three semesters in natural resources areas, including wildlife sciences, natural resource management or closely related fields of environmental sciences, ecology, forestry, fisheries or conservation biology.

This scholarship will be awarded directly to the student upon completion of at least their third semester to help allay the costs of college studies, a release said.

Applicants can secure a copy of the scholarship application at www.prairiechickens.org or emailing Terrylydell@qualityci.us . The deadline to submit applications is March 4.

According to the release, civilization’s advancing pressure on our natural resources threatens our plants, wildlife and air and water systems. This calls for well-trained managers and scientists who can protect and enhance the great outdoors that we all depend on for healthy lives. This scholarship is aimed at helping develop natural resource managers and scientists.
