Master Educator Scholarship

Grand Canyon National Park, AZ: Are you interested in becoming a Master Educator, but cannot afford the course? The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics has scholarships available through the generous support of our Partners Deuter and Outdoor Research.

This past month we met a woman who teaches for a community college and also guides in the Grand Canyon. She was a recipient of our Master Educator Scholarship and attended a National Outdoor Leadership School ME course in the Grand Canyon. She was gracious and very appreciative of the experience she had thanks to the scholarship. Thanks to her receiving the scholarship she is putting on multiple Trainers Courses and lots of awareness workshops in her community.

"Living here in East Tennessee amidst some of the most beautiful mountains and rivers in the South, the Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics message is vitally important to all of us. The beauty of these hills and rivers depend on us to maintain and protect."  - Wayne Hannah, Master Educator Course Scholarship Recipient 

Eligibility: Applicants should be registered for a Master Educator Course within the same calendar year as their scholarship deadline.  Note: Due to the already low cost of Master Educator Courses offered through the BSA, applicants of BSA courses are not eligible for scholarship dollars.


Master Educator Scholarships are designed to provide partial course tuition to individuals enrolled in an approved Master Educator Course. Scholarships cover up to half of course tuition and do not include travel costs or other related expenses.

Consideration is given to those individuals demonstrating a need for Leave No Trace education in their region as well as those who have specific Leave No Trace related outreach/educational goals upon course completion.
