Each year, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation RMEF recognizes outstanding wildlife science college students through our scholarship program, the Wildlife Leadership Awards (WLA). Established to recognize, encourage and promote leadership among future wildlife management professionals, the program awards scholarships to college juniors and seniors chosen for their leadership ability, dedication to wildlife conservation and scholastic achievements. Awards include a $5,000 scholarship and one-year RMEF membership.

WLA encourages young adults to pursue a career in conservation (wildlife management in particular), and provides a means for them to acquire the in-depth knowledge and experiences necessary to cement their commitment to the cause and become leaders in their field.
