The Wildlife Society recently learned that the Wild Sheep Foundation has created a $5,000 scholarship and internship opportunity for students to learn the business side of wildlife management. The student will serve as the Youth Intern Board Member on the Board of the WSF beginning on May 1, 2015.

Individuals must be a member of the WSF and will be required to travel to all board meetings. The intern will actively work on all subcommittees and apply a younger perspective on issues within the organization’s network. The term lasts for up to two years, with a Board of Directors Scholarship in the amount of $5,000 a year for schooling.

The application can be downloaded here. For more information, visit the WFS website. Applications can be sent to Ryan Brock, education coordinator, at Rbrock@wildsheepfoundation.org. The deadline to apply is midnight on February 28, 2015.

The Wildlife Society has worked with the WSF in developing fact sheets on the impacts of disease on bighorn sheep management, which can be found here.
