* Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship
The Wilderness Society, a leading conservation organization based in Washington, D.C., offers an annual scholarship, available to qualified graduate students. We award up to $10,000 to current 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. Tom Barron created the Gloria Barron Wilderness Society Scholarship in honor of his mother, Gloria Barron, a dedicated educator and tireless advocate for wilderness protection.
