The Wyss Foundation selected Lewis & Clark and its Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law program as one of  the first law schools to be included in the Wyss Scholars Program. The Wyss Foundation is a private, charitable organization, dedicated to western public lands issues, and its Scholars Program supports graduate-level education for the next generation of leaders in western land conservation.

J.D. students in their second year at Lewis & Clark who are interested in natural resources and public lands issues in western lands, may apply to serve as Wyss Scholars. If selected, the program includes generous tuition benefits, stipends for summer work, and financial assistance post-graduation to continue work in natural resources and public lands issues in western lands, more specifically, in the following areas: Oregon, California, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. The Scholars Program also provides access to a broad community of current and past Scholars–people who share an interest and passion for conservation and are working to protect western landscapes

Lewis & Clark’s Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy law program is proud to work with the Wyss Foundation in cultivating students who will be the leaders and change-makers in western land conservation.
