The Arizona Elk Society has chosen to provide scholarships to High School Seniors and College students. The AES desires to support students pursuing a degree in wildlife sciences or other closely related fields.These scholarships are available to students who will attend or are already attending accredited colleges and universities. Our hope is that these students will become the next generation of wildlife conservationists.


All recipients must exhibit a commitment to wildlife and the outdoors and participate in school-related responsibilities and activities. Applicants for each of the two high school student scholarships must be Arizona residents and graduating high school seniors with plans to attend an accredited college. All students, both high school and college, must have a minimum GPA of 2.7 on a 4.0 scale. Applicants for the college student scholarship must be pursuing a degree in and/or closely related to wildlife science from an accredited college or university.
