The application process requires –

Applicants must be high school seniors graduating this year.

The Rocky Mountaineers established a permanent memorial college scholarship fund to assist deserving high school students who are directly related to current Rocky Mountaineer members or are endorsed by a Rocky Mountaineer member.

The inspiration of the Memorial Scholarship was to honor Clint Kyhl who passed in February of 2015. One of Clint’s core values, as a steward of public land, was to provide for quality and diverse education experiences for families.

We presented our first scholarship of $1,500 in 2015 and awarded two additional scholarships in 2016 through 2019 respectively.

Since 2020 and now again in 2024, we are pleased to be able to award FOUR $1,500 scholarships, with two earmarked for natural resource majors.

The Rocky Mountaineers are dedicated to supporting the many avenues of natural resource careers and to the development of promising young people who are related or closely connected to the Rocky Mountaineers.  Donors play a significant role in achieving this goal. Please consider supporting this program.
