Scholarship Description

The Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Inc. Founders Fund Scholarship is a merit scholarship offered annually in the name of the TGF founders, to a single recipient who has demonstrated excellence and outstanding dedication in a field of study that falls within an environmental field of a school or department. It was the hope of the founders, as it is the hope of the current membership of Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, that the recipient will use this scholarship to assist his or her studies, and after graduation seek employment in the tri-state region in either the public or private sector furthering the cause of environmental protection and riparian habitat conservation for the benefit of all.This scholarship is available to students enrolled, and who will continue to be enrolled during the award year in a full-time four-year undergraduate degree (sophomore standing or higher) or graduate degree program at a member institution of the Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges & Universities.

Based on a 4.0 scale, the applicant shall demonstrate merit with a current 3.5 GPA in the environmental concentration courses and an overall minimum 3.0 GPA. The scholarship is open to U.S. citizens only.Having received a TGF scholarship in the past does not prohibit future eligibility. A student may be awarded more than one consecutive TGF scholarship.
