Scholarships Available for Becoming-an-Outdoors Woman Workshop in New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. -- Several scholarships are available to defray the cost of attending New Hampshire's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) fall weekend workshop. To be considered for financial assistance, interested women must mail a completed scholarship application postmarked by May 1, 2018, along with a written statement and $35 application deposit. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

To apply for a BOW scholarship, go to www.nhbow.com; a link to the scholarship application can be found under “Upcoming Workshops.”

Please apply as soon as possible to ensure that your application is received in time. Applications postmarked after May 1 will not be accepted.

Among the BOW scholarships being offered this year is a special mother-daughter scholarship; both mother and daughter must apply (the daughter must be age 18 or older). There is also an Elkins Fish and Game Club scholarship for a woman who is a resident of the Kearsarge area. Several more general scholarships are also available.

If you do not receive a scholarship, the $35 scholarship application fee will be returned OR may be applied to the regular registration fee if you choose to participate in the fall weekend without a scholarship.

Those who are offered a fall BOW scholarship must also register for the fall program; registration opens June 4 at www.nhbow.com. If you do not register, you will not get in, even if you have a scholarship.

Please note that being awarded a scholarship does not guarantee your placement in specific classes.
