Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Inc. Founders Fund Scholarship

The Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Inc. and the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities are pleased to announce the Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Inc. Founders Fund Scholarship.


This merit scholarship, in the amount of $3,500, is offered annually in the name of the TGF founders, to a single recipient who has demonstrated excellence and outstanding dedication in a field of study that falls within an environmental field of a school or department. It was the hope of the founders, as it is the hope of the current membership of Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, that the recipient will use this scholarship to assist his or her studies, and after graduation seek employment in the tri-state region in either the public or private sector furthering the cause of environmental protection and riparian habitat conservation for the benefit of all.

This scholarship is available to:
- Undergraduate students who will have senior standing as of the upcoming fall semester, who will be enrolled, and who will continue to be enrolled during the award year, in a full-time four-year undergraduate degree at a member institution of the Environmental Consortium. [Students apply for the scholarship in their junior year.]
- Graduate students who will be enrolled, and who will continue to be enrolled during the award year, in a full-time graduate degree program at a member institution of the Environmental Consortium.

The eligible applicant’s major shall be in an area of environmental studies such as but not limited to ecology, hydrology, conservation biology, natural resource management, zoology or environmental law and policy. Based on a 4.0 scale, the applicant shall demonstrate merit with a current 3.5 GPA in the environmental concentration courses and an overall minimum 3.0 GPA. The scholarship is open to U.S. citizens only.

Having received a TGF scholarship in the past does not prohibit future eligibility. A student may be awarded more than one consecutive TGF scholarship; however, priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received a TGF scholarship.
