Indigenous Travel Grants to
Support Moose Conservation
Part of the success of the 55th North American Moose Conference and Workshop was a result of the direct participation and support from the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. Likewise, the ½ day workshop “Multinational and Indigenous Co-Stewardship of North American Moose” presented an opportunity for all conference participants to learn more about co-stewardship of moose and other wildlife in North America.
To foster continued progress towards co-stewardship of moose, 2 travel grants of up to $1,500 USD each will be available to support attendance by indigenous students or tribal employees at the upcoming 56th North American Moose Conference and Workshop in Midway, Utah, May 13-16, 2024. It is expected that employers or sponsors of the applicants will also assist with travel costs, as needed.
Expenses can be used for registration, lodging, airfare, car rental, parking, or food. Payment will be made for travel-related expenses, documented by receipts, shortly after the Conference, by the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF).
Homestead Resort in Midway is located about an hour from Salt Lake City on the backside of the Wasatch Mountains in the beautiful Heber Valley. More details on the conference will be forthcoming.
Deadline for submission is March 15, 2024. Applicants will be notified of acceptance no later than March 18, 2024. Completed applications or questions about the grant should be submitted to Steve Windels via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include “Indigenous Travel Grant” in the subject line.
