Will you help us support local graduating seniors?

Did you know that CPA offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors at Escalante and Pagosa Springs High Schools? These scholarships support advanced studies at any college, university, or technical college and are sponsored by 262 Ranches, of Tierra Amarila, New Mexico, and donors like you!

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. First place awards of $1,000 and runner-up awards of $500 are given to as many students as our fund can support in a given year.

Application materials are available through each school's counselor's office during the winter semester of each school year (pst…materials are available NOW!).

Interested in donating to support this scholarship fund? We’d LOVE to add your support for these amazing students! Click here to donate online or send a check made out to “Chama Peak Land Alliance” to PO Box 5701, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147. Make sure to indicate your donation is for the scholarship fund.
