  • GNWA Educational Trust Scholarship

    Melanie Colón

    In 2001, the Grand National Waterfowl Educational Trust was formed as a separate 501©3 tax exempt organization to facilitate and give emphasis to educational activities.


    The Trust provides scholarships to assist qualified undergraduate students studying at accredited colleges and universities offering degrees in the field of natural sciences. The Trust also encourages a better understanding of habitat preservation and wildfowl management through grants and loans to graduate students conducting wildlife research.

    The Trust has no salaried executives, with all of its funding dedicated to tax-exempt educational programs.


    The Trust receives funding and support from a variety of sources to maintain its educational and research objectives. Trust benefactors include individuals, non-profit conservation organizations, corporations and public sector agencies. All share a common interest in the future of the country’s natural resources and wildlife management.


    Since the scholarship program was first initiated in 1987, over $200,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to local students.
