For students training in the field of
wildlife management.

We are proud to announce we are accepting applications for 2024.

The Janice and Paul Keesler Memorial Scholarship Committee is proud to announce that we are accepting applications for 2024 scholarship awards. This annual scholarship award is 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. 

 This scholarship was established as a living memorial for two people who loved New York State and the outdoors. Janice and Paul 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.

 To date, the fund has had the honor of distributing more than $35,000 in grants to deserving students.
