Outdoor Writers Association of America encourages current Active or Associate OWAA members to submit applications for the 2013 John Madson Fellowship. Applications must be sent to the OWAA headquarters, postmarked no later than March 1, 2013.
Since its inception in 1994, the John Madson Fellowship has provided OWAA members with more than $12,000 in funding to continue their education in the outdoors communication field. It can provide funding for individuals to participate OWAA programs, such as the annual conference, as well as outside continuing education opportunities.
The Madson Fellowship can provide reimbursement toward tuition/registration and room and board costs for a workshop or conference of your choice. It can also be used to cover travel expenses.
The Fellowship is funded through the John Madson Fellowship Fund, an endowment that thrives primarily through OWAA member contributions and fundraising efforts. Its goal is to enhance professional communication skills for all of OWAA’s members.
To apply, you must complete an application form, attach a cover letter explaining your needs and a proposal for continuing education, an itemized budget of miscellaneous expenses, and include a sample of your work (published article or photos, tape of broadcast program, etc.).
