Funded by the Wyss Foundation, a private, charitable foundation dedicated to land conservation in the Intermountain West, the Wyss Scholars Program seeks to identify and support a new generation of leaders focused on western land conservation issues.
The selected Lewis & Clark Scholars will receive financial support during their 2L summer, 3L year and post-graduation. Applications are available to second-year law students currently enrolled at and planning to graduate from Lewis & Clark Law School who are committed to careers as conservationists of western land with a federal, state or tribal land management agency or a nonprofit conservation group working in the defined region. Two Wyss Scholars will be selected from Lewis & Clark Law School on the basis of their leadership potential and academic strength and their commitment to furthering land conservation in the Intermountain West.
