BENEFITING: ROUND RIVER CONSERVATION STUDIES
Round River’s study abroad programs bring university students into large, wild landscapes to assist local communities with conservation research. Students earn credits while building field skills to prepare them for a career in conservation. Our programs are funded through student tuition, however many bright, motivated students face financial challenges that may hinder them from participating in a Round River program.
Through the Edward Abbey Scholarship fund, qualified students apply for and receive financial assistance to make their dream of studying in the wild a reality. You can help students achieve this reality by donating to the scholarship.
Edward Abbey was a friend to many and an inspiration to all associated with Round River. Ed’s family has graciously agreed that we may use his name in this manner. Ed Abbey wrote: "Any good poet, in our age at least, must begin with the scientific view of the world; and any scientist worth listening to must be something of a poet, must possess the ability to communicate to the rest of us his sense of love and wonder at what his work discovers.”
Round River is committed to training the next generation of conservationists by involving students in real projects and providing quality, hands-on education in the field. Help make this experience possible for qualified and dedicated students by contributing to our Ed Abbey scholarship fund. Donations will go directly towards funding student tuition.
