Elevating Audubon: America’s Most Effective Conservation Network

The 2017 Audubon Convention (July 14-17, 2017) will be filled with jam-packed days of networking events, distinguished keynote speakers at the forefront of conservation science and policy, hands-on workshop sessions and discussion groups, technology demos, as well as enthralling birding field trips and adventures – all located in the breathtaking alpine Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah.

Generous Audubon supporters have created a scholarship fund to support the attendance of Audubon chapter leaders and other grassroots conservation leaders who are contributing to Audubon's mission.

Scholarships will be awarded on merit and on a first-come, first-served basis, so please apply early!

Sustainer scholarships are $600 awards and can be applied to registration and other expenses.

Young leader scholarships are $1,000 awards for leaders who are ages 35 and under.

Please note: Scholarship funds will be distributed after the convention ends in July 2017. Scholarship recipients must register and pay for the convention and lodging in advance. Scholarship funds will be distributed within 30 days after the conclusion of the convention.
