MISSOULA, Montana – The Outdoor Writers Association of America encourages outdoor communicators to submit applications for the 2015 John Madson Fellowship. Applications must be sent to the OWAA headquarters, postmarked no later than March 2, 2015.
OWAA’s John Madson Fellowship provides funding to attend educational opportunities, including the OWAA annual conference. Educational programs do not have to be OWAA-organized programs. The fellowship is open to OWAA members and non-members.
The fellowship is funded through the John Madson Fellowship Fund, an endowment composed primarily of OWAA member contributions and fundraising efforts. Its goal is to enhance professional communication skills for OWAA members and non-members. Funds are invested and managed by OWAA Endowment trustees.
This is a competitive awards process. The last Madson Fellowship distribution awarded two people with more than $1,000 each for professional development.
