Apply for 2017 Travel Scholarships

In Partnership with Southwest Airlines

The National Forest Foundation is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for recent grant recipients to leverage their conservation impact. NFF grant recipients are eligible to submit an application to win free roundtrip e-Passes anywhere that Southwest Airlines flies in the continental US and Puerto Rico.

Winners can use e-Passes to travel to workshops, trainings, conferences, or other similar events or activities related to NFF’s Mission: Engaging Americans in promoting the health and public enjoyment of our National Forests.

Applicant organizations must have received an NFF grant between 2012 and 2018 and be in good standing with no overdue reports or other deliverables. 

All travel must occur by January 10, 2019.

All e-Passes are valid only on Southwest Airlines and are not transferable to other network carriers. Limited tickets available.

Additional expenses, including but not limited to event registration, room, board, and incidentals are not included and are the responsibility of the travel scholarship recipient.

The travel affiliated with this award may not be used to lobby or influence any federal, state, or local legislative body or any federal, state, or local legislative proposal.

Organizations may currently request up to two round trip scholarships. This restriction may change depending on demand.
