Thanks to the generosity of donors, Conservation Leadership awards partial scholarships to a number of incoming Conservation Leadership students in most years. These amounts vary year to year, depending on contributions to the scholarship fund and other factors. Scholarships are usually in the range of $1500 to $5000.

Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellows Program

This fellowship is in partnership with the United States Peace Corps. To be eligible, a student must be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) and submit their  Description  of Service (DOS) with their application. This fellowship opportunity offers  financial assistance and allows fellows to develop new skills in conservation disciplines through instruction, field-work and research which values cross-cultural  and inter-disciplinary perspectives. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers are eligible for the Coverdell Fellowship, which amounts to a 33% discount on tuition for the Fall and Spring semesters (note: the discount does not apply to Summer tuition and is awarded up to three applicants).

Conservation Leadership will also award $1,500 scholarships for up to three Americorps volunteers.

Scholarship and assistantship selections are based on information in the Conservation Leadership applications. Students do not need to do anything additional to be considered for a Conservation Leadership scholarship or assistantship that is awarded by the Conservation Leadership program. However, CSU has other scholarship and financial aid programs, which require additional materials:
