UM Outdoor Scholars Program sees record fall enrollment

FROM STAFF REPORTS

The President’s Outdoor Scholars Program at the University of Montevallo will see its highest-ever enrollment this fall, nearly doubling in size thanks to a large incoming class.

In the fall, the program will welcome 40 new students, bringing its total enrollment to 83 students. The program includes students from Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, Minnesota, Indiana and Wisconsin.

“We have doubled the size of the freshman class and the overall enrollment of the outdoor scholars program this year,” said Outdoor Scholars Program Director William Crawford. “It’s amazing to see the passion all these young people have for the outdoors.”

The President’s Outdoor Scholars Program was created by UM President John W. Stewart III in 2015 and offers a unique destination for students who have a passion for stewardship and wildlife conservation. The program puts an emphasis on experiential learning for students allowing participants to garner hands-on experience in outdoor careers.

Unique to Alabama, the program provides an opportunity to earn a college degree while also taking an active role in preserving Alabama’s natural resources. The program serves to provide scholarships for non-traditional and first-generation college students.
