Scholarship Program

Penn State DuBois student Nicholas Moore expresses what this Wildlife program scholarship has meant to him.

The Club sponsors three $1,000.00 scholarships to students enrolled in the Wildlife curriculum at the DuBois Campus of the Pennsylvania State University.  The Scholarship recipients are selected by Penn State.  This letter (printed with permission) from Nicholas Moore expresses what the scholarship has meant to him.

“Dear Pennsylvania Wildlife Habitat Unlimited,

Ever since I was a little boy, I have been fascinated by wildlife and the outdoors.  My passion grew as I did, and by the time I was thirteen, I decided I wanted to dedicate my life to preserving wildlife and the outdoors.  I came to Penn State in order to pursue that goal.   But finding the money to pay for college isn’t easy.  It is thanks to wonderful people, like you, that I have been able to pay for my education.  Thanks to your help, I am much closer to reaching my goal.

Penn State DuBois is a wonderful campus, but it is only my first step.  My academic plan is a long one that will take many years to accomplish.  First I will attend PSU for two years and obtain an Associate Degree in Wildlife Technology.  Then I will move onto University Park and further my education by getting a Baccalaureate Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science.  After that I will attend a graduate school to earn my Master’s Degree and eventually a Doctoral Degree.  Such a long academic plan will cost a great deal of money.  This makes your scholarship even more valuable to me!

In addition to my school work, I am also involved in many extracurricular activities.  I am highly involved in the Boy Scouts of America.  I started when I was 10 and now I am assistant scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 34, from Brockport, Pa.  I am also President of the ECO Club on campus (also referred to as the Outing Club), which is a club devoted to spending time in nature.  I have also volunteered with the game commission and have attended many networking events, such as the Penn State DuBois annual scholarship luncheon.  By becoming involved in wildlife related extracurricular activities and networking with wildlife professionals, I am building experience that will help me find a job after graduation. 

Though I was immediately sure of my field and knew what I wanted to do as far as my education, my exact career goal was a little fuzzier.  I thought about being a game commissioner and a park ranger.  But now I have decided I want to be an Ornithologist.  I am fascinated by birds, especially birds of prey, and want to learn as much as I can about them.  My education is vital in getting a job as an Ornithologist, and your scholarship will help me along the way!

College is a road that will lead me to my goal.  And without money that road can’t stay open.  Your scholarship helps me get one step closer to my goal.  It means the world to me and I am honored to have received it.  What you are doing is a wonderful thing and I hope you continue to help0 students like me, who have goals they wish to pursue.  Thank you so much for your help!

Sincerely,
Nicholas Moore
