NYSOWA’s Bob McNitt Memorial Scholarship Program

• The New York State Outdoor Writers Association (NYSOWA) proudly awards youths in New York through the Bob McNitt Memorial Scholarship program. NYSOWA’s entire membership contributes to this fund that annually awards a $1,000 scholarship to a college student enrolled in a curriculum related to journalism, outdoors or the environment.

• NYSOWA sponsors  two youths ages 11-17 to attend one week sessions at one of four DEC Summer camps where they are sure to enjoy memorable outdoor experiences.

• Starting in 2021, NYSOWA sends a member, spouse or NYSOWA member relative to DEC’s Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop. We also make a donation to the program.

Stay tuned for 2023 scholarship info, including donation opportunities.
