Scholarships

Houston Safari Club is committed to furthering the education of students pursuing a career in conservation.

In conjunction with its charitable arm, the American Conservation and Education Society* (ACES), we proudly present the Dan L. Duncan Scholarship Program.

HSC annually awards scholarships to students currently involved in the study of Wildlife Management and/or Range Management. Since the program’s inception in 1999, 475 scholarships have been awarded, totaling almost 2 million dollars. HSC proudly recognizes and encourages students who have exhibited academic excellence and exemplary character through our prestigious scholarship program.

HSC understands that the future of conservation depends on the education of bright and gifted scholars who will work to protect hunter’s rights and wildlife conservation for decades to come. Many HSC scholarship recipients have gone on to become thought leaders and game-changers in the conservation world.
