Diversity Scholarship

The Center for Public Lands cares about Diversity

Despite attempts to create a diverse workforce, federal land management agencies struggle to hire qualified minority employees; in 2017, only 17% of National Park Service were non-white. The Center for Public Lands hopes to empower an under-served, diverse student to pursue a career in public lands through its diversity scholarship. The selected student will study Integrative Public Lands Management in the Master of Environmental Management program at Western Colorado University. The Center for Public Lands works closely with the National Park Service, US Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management to connect students to land management opportunities and provide them opportunities to jump-start conservation careers.
