Natural Resources Scholarship

 

Natural Resources Scholarship

The Hualapai Tribe holds ownership of approximately one million acres of land including 108 miles of the Colorado River and Grand Canyon corridor which contain a myriad of natural resources including wildlife, fish, timber, water, etc. in very diverse habitats and ecosystems. The need for proper management and protection of these resources now and in the future is and will always be an upmost priority to the Tribe. In order to take a proactive approach, it is especially important to educate and train Hualapai Tribal members specifically in the field of natural resources management to responsibly manage and protect their homelands. It is our hope that this Scholarship* will be a positive start for the future of the Hualapai Tribe and the resources that are held so dear.

 

Considered by many to be a once in a lifetime event. An exclusive hunt is held annually by the Hualapai Tribe in which the proceeds of the sale are to be used to establish a College Scholarship Fund.

 

Scholarship Hunt

The Hualapai Reservation which consitsts of nearly 1 milliion acres of Ponderosa Forests, High Desert and Canyon Lands around the West Rim of the Grand Canyon is made available to hunt for high scoring Trophy-Size Rocky Mountain Bull Elk. In the world of Game Hunting there are very few species as majestic-looking as the Rocky Mountain Elk.  This massive animal is one of the largest in the deer family weighing upwards of several hundred pounds and has antlers that can grow to massive lengths. Our hunts provide a very exciting and challenging event for hunters and help to conserve our resources.

The primary purpose of the scholarship fund is to enable and provide an opportunity to Hualapai Tribal members to attain a college education with the hopes they will come back to the reservation and manage their natural resources for future generations. The scholarship fund is used to send enrolled Hualapai Tribal members to a trade school to obtain a certificate, a two-year school for an Associates of Arts, Associates of Science, or Associates of General Studies Degree, or four-year University to study in a natural resource related field (example:  air, wind and atmosphere, animals, agriculture, coal, fossil fuels, rock and mineral resources, forestry, range and pasture, land , soils, water, oceans, lakes, groundwater, rivers, and solar power) and eventually attain a Bachelors of Science degree. This Scholarship will pay costs such as tuition, textbooks, lab fees, stipend, etc. This scholarship also includes room and board.
