      *Travel Scholarships Available for Native People to Participate in Major
      Conference on Protected Areas & Cultural Sites*
      Indigenous people from anywhere in North America (Canada, Mexico, and USA)
      are eligible to apply.
      Fri, Nov 23, 2012
      DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1, 2012. Indigenous persons who are active in caring for
      and protecting natural areas and cultural/sacred sites are invited to take
      part in North America's largest professional meeting on protected areas.
      Held every two years, the George Wright Society Conference on Parks,
      Protected Areas, and Cultural Sites is the leading interdisciplinary forum
      for Native and non-Native people to gather and discuss issues and
      innovations in place-based stewardship. The next conference will be in
      Denver, Colorado, USA, March 11-15, 2013. The conference website is
      http://www.georgewright.org/gws2013.
      Guided by an all-Native planning group, portions of this wide-ranging,
      week-long meeting are designed to meet the needs of Native professionals,
      community activists and students. The Native-focused parts of the
      conference program include papers, posters, sharing circles, a Native Film
      Night, and other events, as well as great informal networking
      opportunities. To help Indigenous people take part, the George Wright
      Society offers two travel scholarship
      programs:

      Full-time Native students at an institute of higher education (including
      2-year tribal colleges) can apply for a George Melendez Wright Student
      Travel Scholarship. Go to http://www.georgewright.org/gws2013_gmwsts for
      details.

      Indigenous people who are not full-time students can apply for a Native
      Participant Travel Grant. Complete information is at
      http://www.georgewright.org/gws2013_nptg.

      Indigenous people from anywhere in North America (Canada, Mexico, and USA)
      are eligible to apply. Applications are due by December 1. You must apply
      on-line; the application forms can be accessed through the links above.

      GWS2013 is a wonderful opportunity to meet with Native and non-Native
      colleagues and exchange ideas in a supportive, collegial atmosphere.

      If you have any questions about the scholarship programs, please contact
      Dave Harmon, GWS Executive Director, at dharmon@... or
      1-906-487-9722. Thank you
