SCHOLARSHIP 2018

Alaska's Kenai Peninsula Chapter of Safari Club International is a non-profit organization
dedicated to wildlife conservation, education, humanitarian efforts, and protecting our hunting
heritage.  To further these goals, we will award a $4000 scholarship ($1000 per year for 4 years)

Peninsula Borough.  To be eligible, the student must be accepted into a program of wildlife
management or research curriculum in a related field at an accredited college or university and

Scholarship monies will be disbursed as reimbursement to the applicant's chosen institution of
higher learning.  Scholarship funds may be used for tuition or books and supplies.  Any funds
not used by the recipient will revert to the AKPSCI scholarship fund.

The scholarship may be renewed each year for continuing education in the approved program.
