The Izaak Walton League offers two $2,500 scholarships each year to help educate tomorrow’s conservation leaders. The scholarships support college students pursuing degrees in natural resources and related subjects and complement scholarships offered by League chapters and divisions.

We are pleased to announce that the Izaak Walton League of America Endowment has generously doubled its support and is now fully funding both scholarships!

Based on feedback gathered during last year’s application process, we have extended the scholarship application deadline to May 15, 2017.

This is a great opportunity for young people in your community, so please helps us spread the word.

Detailed requirements and application forms are available on the League Web site at For more information about the application process, contact Earl Hower, IWLA Director of Chapter Relations, at or (800) IKE-LINE x216.
