We looked for individuals representing and/or serving underserved populations, who have shown a commitment to the field of outdoor recreation, with a focus on conservation or diversity, equity, and inclusion. These “emerging leaders” are individuals who can broaden the impact of their efforts through additional training and connections built within AORE and its partners. They are positioned to increase access and/or advocacy for public lands. Preferred applicants are in their twenties, have a Bachelor's Degree in a relevant field, and either holding a job in the field or pursuing a related graduate degree.

APPLY FOR CLASS OF 2018

We encourage applicants representing and/or serving populations historically and currently under-represented in the outdoor recreation and education world, who have shown a commitment to the field of outdoor recreation and education. These individuals will ideally have a focus on conservation and/or addressing elements of inequality in the outdoors. These are individuals who can broaden the impact of their efforts through additional training and connections built within the AORE and its partners. These emerging leaders are positioned to increase access and/or advocacy for public lands.
