The Wyss Scholars Program for the Conservation of the American West

The Wyss Foundation is a private, charitable foundation dedicated to land conservation in the American West. The Wyss Scholars Program seeks to identify and nurture a new generation of leaders on western land conservation issues by providing financial support to students who are committed to careers focused on western conservation. 

A rising Colorado Law 2L will be selected each year on the basis of leadership potential, commitment to furthering land conservation in the American West, and interest in pursuing a career in nonprofit or public sector conservation.

The Getches-Wilkinson Center is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Cohort through Friday, January 22, 2021
