Wyss Scholarship for U.S. Conservation
Two or three Wyss Scholars will be selected each year on the basis of their leadership potential, commitment to furthering land conservation in the United States, commitment to pursuing a career in the nonprofit or public sector, financial need, and academic strength. All master's students interested in conservation issues are encouraged to apply. Financial benefits include one-half of the cost of attendance (tuition, room, and board, etc.) for three semesters, funds for a summer internship paid during a student's enrollment at SEAS, and two post-graduate payments. In 2023, the combined value is roughly $88,500 for an out-of-state student, depending on the level of their financial need.
