    Students are invited to write a 750-1250 word essay on the topic of Land Stewardship or Trust in the More-Than-Human World for a chance to win a cash scholarship for your educational endeavors. One grand prize scholar will be awarded $1000 for their essay, and two semi-finalists will be awarded $500 each.

    SUWA’s mission is to protect the outstanding wilderness at the heart of the Colorado Plateau in its natural state for all Americans. Recognizing that people of color have historically been left out of the U.S. public land conservation movement, SUWA is committed to raising up diverse voices from across the West.

    Eligible students are those who 1) are self-identified as Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Color, 2) live in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, or a Tribal Nation in the region, and 3) are enrolled at least half-time as an undergraduate at a college, university, technical school, or vocational institution in the Spring 2021 academic year.

    The scholarship application period opens September 22nd and closes on November 29th at 12:00 PM MST.
