In 2008, the DAS Board of Directors started the process of putting together a scholarship award for a lucky high school student choosing to go into the field of conservation. Be it Conservation Officer, Wildlife Biology, Oceanography or any other career benefiting our beloved waters or woods, we now have an avenue to help out a budding conservationist.
The Detroit Area Steelheaders Scholarship allows a high school senior to apply for and earn a $500 scholarship to the college of their choice.
There are several requirements, but let me take a moment to outline the major factors. First and foremost the candidate must be furthering his or her education in the conservation field. Secondly the applicant must be sponsored or recommended by a member of the Detroit Area Steelheaders. Third the applicant must complete and submit an application to be considered for the scholarship.
As a conservation organization, DAS could not think of a better way to insure that our outdoor heritage remains intact than giving to a deserving student that plans to make his or her life ambition a career in conservation services. Our club has made many donations to worthwhile causes over the years. In this Director's opinion, helping a young person start down the road to a lifetime of protecting and improving our Woods, Waters, Fields and Streams is as worthy a cause as any organization could ever hope to be a part of.
