We will begin accepting applications for the 2020 cycle on January 24, 2020.

The Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship seeks to encourage individuals who have the potential to make a significant positive difference in wilderness protection.

The Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship is available to current qualified graduate students. It is created in honor of Gloria Barron, a dedicated educator and tireless advocate for wilderness protection, and administered by The Wilderness Society, a leading conservation organization based in Washington, D.C.

The scholarship amount varies from year to year. Historically, awards of $10,000 have been given to graduate students to support their research and preparation of a paper on an aspect of wilderness. We strongly encourage proposals relating to climate change, as well as other topics regarding wilderness conservation.  

Eligibility requirements

Graduate students meeting the eligibility requirements noted below may apply directly to The Wilderness Society. If you are an applicant, please make sure you meet all of the scholarship eligibility requirements and follow the application procedures below.

Applicants for the Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship must:

Be currently enrolled in an accredited graduate institution in North America;

Have strong academic qualifications;

Have academic and/or career goals focused on making a significant positive difference in the long-term protection of wilderness in the United States. Graduate students in natural resources management, ecology, geography, law or policy programs are strongly encouraged to apply.
