Congratulations to the CPLA high-school scholarship winners!

Each year the Alliance offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors at Escalante and Pagosa Springs High Schools to support advanced studies at any university or technical college. These scholarships are sponsored by Trout Stalker Ranch, of Chama, New Mexico and the 262 Ranch, of Tierra Amarila, New Mexico. Students do not need to be majoring in conservation or the biological sciences, but must write an essay describing why private land conservation is meaningful to them.

Our scholarship recipients this year are: Hailey Rose, Keena Murphy, Kyle Garcia, Roland Sanchez, Keeton Laverty, Kimberly Armendarez, Shannon Terrazas, Andres Martinez, Martina Mercure, Sara Hurd, William Russom, Tanner Cooper, and Marrisa Baca. Please join us in congratulating these well-deserving students and wishing them the best for their college careers! Student biographies and pictures can be viewed HERE.

Application materials are available through each school's counselor's office during the winter semester of each school year.
