Scholarships Available For Becoming An Outdoor Woman

CONCORD, N.H. — Several scholarships are available to defray the cost of attending New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) fall weekend workshop. To be considered for financial assistance, interested women must mail a completed scholarship application postmarked by May 1, 2017, along with a written statement and $35 application deposit. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
To apply for a BOW scholarship, go to www.nhbow.com; a link to the scholarship application can be found under “Upcoming Events/Fall BOW.”
Please apply as soon as possible to ensure that your application is received in time. Applications postmarked after May 1 will not be accepted.
Among the BOW scholarships being offered this year is a special mother-daughter scholarship. Both mother and daughter must apply; the daughter must be age 18 or older.
If you do not receive a scholarship, the $35 scholarship application fee will be returned OR may be applied to the regular registration fee if you choose to participate in the fall weekend without a scholarship.
Those who are offered a fall BOW scholarship must also submit the regular program registration form, which will be available on June 5 at www.nhbow.com. Registration for BOW is first-come, first-served. If the program is full when your registration is received, you will not get in, even if you have a scholarship.
New Hampshire’s fall Becoming an Outdoors-Woman weekend will take place September 8-10, 2017, at Rockywold/Deephaven Camps on Squam Lake in Holderness, N.H.  Participants select four sessions from more than 30 different outdoor skills workshops, including archery, fishing, camping, field dressing game, hiking, kayaking, rifle, shotgun, nature photography, outdoor survival, outdoor cooking, mountain biking, map and compass, and more. More details are available at www.nhbow.com.
Regular registration forms for fall BOW will be available on June 5 and will be accepted by regular mail only (no walk-ins). The fall BOW weekend costs $335, which includes lodging, all meals, equipment and instruction.
New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org).
