Over the years, our Chapter has provided many scholarships to Michigan educators desiring to attend AWLS. These $900 scholarships are available to both primary and secondary teachers interested in attending the school and improving their ability to impact their students’ knowledge of the great outdoors! Please help our Michigan chapter by nominating a teacher for our club to sponsor. To learn more about AWLS go to the SCI website at SafariClubFoundation.org/Education/AWLS. If you know of an educator who may be interested in attending AWLS, please get in contact with a Chapter board member to apply for a scholarship. This is a great opportunity for the educator, the kids, and our Chapter to get involved in the great outdoors!
