Texas Parks and Wildlife Conservation Scholarship

Advancing conservation through education, for graduating high school students, current college students, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department employees.

About the Program

Established in 1992, the Parks and Wildlife Conservation Scholarship Program is an important source of financial support for talented students and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department employees who are eager to learn and committed to conserving our state’s rich lands, waters, and wildlife.

Comprised of four scholarship funds: Brady M. Boyd Wildlife Management Scholarship, The Andrew Sansom Scholarship Fund, The Arch Hollingsworth Scholarship Fund, and the Larry McEachron Memorial Scholarship Fund, the Parks and Wildlife Scholarship Program has awarded nearly $300,000 to more than 250 students pursuing degrees in natural and cultural resource conservation fields, and TPWD employees who are seeking certifications, licenses, or specialized skills that will advance their careers.

Through the generosity of its benefactors, the Parks and Wildlife Conservation Scholarship Program is ensuring that the best and brightest individuals, regardless of their financial means, can pursue a career in conservation.
