For students training in the field of
wildlife management.

We are proud to announce that the KEEsLER Scholarship Fund is now accepting applications for 2019 from qualified students.

As a living memorial for two people who loved New York State and the outdoors, this fund assists students training in the field of wildlife management. Paul and Janice were avid sports persons who wrote and lectured about the outdoors and founded and published the nationally recognized and respected New York Sportsman Magazine.

A great loss to all those who appreciate the wonder of nature, Janice passed away suddenly in 1988 and Paul in 2005 after a protracted battle with cancer. They are greatly missed.

 The scholarship awards are available to any New York State resident who has been accepted into an accredited institution of higher learning and is, or will be, working toward obtaining a degree in some facet of wildlife management. The twenty-fourth series of the Janice & Paul Keesler Scholarship will be awarded in the fall of 2019. To date, the fund has had the honor of distributing more than $29,500 in grants to deserving Wildlife Management students.
