The 2019 scholarships have been selected, please check back in early 2020 if you’re interested in applying.
Have you been thinking you’d like to do some volunteer trail work to repay or give back for the hours you’ve spent hiking trails? Want to have fun doing it? Like to stay overnight as part of it and eat chef-prepared meals in a log cabin lodge? Like to sleep where you can smell the pine-scented fresh air? The Maine Chapter has just the deal for you!
You are invited to apply for a scholarship that will cover all costs for food and overnight lodging during one of three trailwork opportunities in AMC’s MWI. The Peter Roderick Trail Work Award (PRTWA) will cover the cost of a multi-day volunteer trail work outing in AMC’s MWI area in Maine. With preference to first- or second-time trailwork volunteers, up to four scholarships may be awarded for use during any of three volunteer trips during 2019.
The three volunteer trips during 2019 are May 24-27, July 8-11, and October 11-14. Each trip begins with 6pm dinner and an overnight at one of the three AMC lodges outside of Greenville, Maine, and ends after lunch on the final day. All charges for bunkhouse accommodations and all meals during that time are covered by the scholarship.
