Youth Scholarships


The Arizona Elk Society has chosen to provide scholarships to High School Seniors and College students. AES desires to support students pursuing a degree in wildlife sciences or other closely related fields. These scholarships are available to students who will attend or are already attending accredited colleges and universities. Our hope is that these students will become the next generation of wildlife conservationists. If you know someone who could benefit from this scholarship, please share this information with them.




Congratulations to our 2023
