CPLA Conservation Scholarship

Congratulations to the 2019 Scholarship Awardees!

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 the 262 Ranches, of Tierra Amarila, New Mexico and other private donors to the Alliance. 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.

Check out our 2019 awardees HERE and help us celebrate these exceptional students!

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

Are you interested in donating to support scholarships for deserving students in our communities? You can donate online HERE. Your entire gift will go directly to students.
