John Johnson receiving a scholarship certificate from WGCD Board President John Leone.

In 2017, WGCD will award up to $25,5000 in scholarships to college students who pursue careers in natural resources and/or agriculture.


WGCD offers three different scholarships. The amount of each varies year to year, according to  applicants’ qualifications. Each is based on the application requirement; student GPA; study area; where the student lives; and the college he/she plans to attend.


We consistently receive few applications for scholarships. Incoming college freshmen, undergraduates and graduate students are all eligible. Visit for details about each scholarship, including eligibility criteria and application instructions.
