The Wyoming Women’s Foundation is offering scholarships to pay participation expenses for women interested in joining the 2014 Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt.

The hunt, hosted by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, will be held Oct. 9-12, 2014 in northeastern Wyoming. The Wyoming Women’s Foundation created the hunt to promote camaraderie and mentorship through hunting while raising awareness of and funds for the Foundation’s mission to improve the economic self-sufficiency of women in the state.

The scholarship covers the cost of hunting on private lands, a hunting license, lodging, and meals for the event. Selected applicants will be responsible for their own transportation to the event. Applicants must be women. Ideal candidates would have a desire to learn to hunt to feed their family and are looking for mentorship to do so. However, the scholarship is not exclusively for first time hunters.

According to a news release, the application involves completing a short online essay by 5 p.m. on July 8 describing why the applicant feels she should be selected.

The event will provide a guided antelope hunt with a strong emphasis on safe, responsible hunting and mentorship. The field portion of Wyoming’s hunter safety course will be offered shortly before the hunt. The other portion of hunter safety requirements can be completed online before participants arrive for the hunt. The hunt will provide loaner rifles for scholarship recipients if necessary.
