Education Sables Scholarship

Recognizing a need to increase the number of women working in the field of wildlife ecology Sables, a memberships group within Safari Club International, developed and funded endowed scholarships at five universities that select young women majoring in wildlife ecology as scholarship recipients.

Each university selects scholarship recipients majoring in wildlife ecology or related major. Scholarship winners are offered an opportunity to attend the SCI Convention where they meet those who founded the scholarships and learn more about SCI. Applications for these scholarships may be requested directly from the participating university. Sables Hunting Heritage Scholarship endowments are established at the following five universities:

Texas A & M University SCI Foundation Sables Hunting Heritage Scholarship
West Virginia University C.J. McElroy Hunting Heritage Scholarship
University of Idaho Elaine & Gus Vogeler Hunting Heritage Scholarship
