The deadline for scholarship applications is February 18, 2022.

The Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals (SORP) will award scholarships for New Professionals to attend the 2022 National Outdoor Recreation Conference. Applicants should be employed in the outdoor recreation profession and have completed an outdoor recreation degree within the last five years or be under 35 years of age. Applicants MUST be current SORP members.

Scholarships will include a full conference registration and a $750 stipend to cover a portion of travel/lodging. Scholarship recipients may be asked to volunteer as room assistants and/or for other small (but important!) tasks at the conference.

SORP is committed to inclusivity, as well as social and environmental justice. We welcome applications from anyone, and we especially encourage individuals of color, those with tribal affiliation, those with disabilities, those who identify as LGBTQ, veterans, and anyone else inclusively. Our mission is to be the voice of the Outdoor Recreation profession, and we won’t truly be able to achieve that vision without you.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
