The purpose of the STIHL Scholarship is to reduce barriers that prevent students from attending the State Park Leadership School and to enhance the educational experience by encouraging a diverse student body.
Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis within the constraints listed below.
The following guidelines are to ensure scholarship funds are dispensed consistent with the purpose of the program and are available to the maximum number of participants.
Cost-effective travel includes taking the most direct routes to and from Oglebay when driving. If a state is successful in securing more than one scholarship and participants travel to the school by automobile, only a shared vehicle will be eligible for reimbursement.
All requests for reimbursement must be received by February 1 following the onsite school session at Oglebay.
