SCHOLARSHIPSFostering a Future for Outdoor Communicators
Explore La Crosse Scholarship
The La Crosse County Convention and Visitors Bureau (DBA Explore La Crosse) is proud to announce starting in 2019, they will be offering an annual scholarship of up to $2,000.00. The objective of this scholarship is to introduce professionals in the tourism industry to the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers by providing funding necessary so an individual may attend an AGLOW Annual Conference, with little or no out-of-pocket expenses. We hope by attending the conference individuals in the tourism industry understand the importance and economic impact outdoor recreation has on any given community or region. The applicant must be employed on a full-time basis, and have been so for at least one year, with his/her current employer (e.g., a convention and visitors bureau/destination marketing organization located in the great lakes region of the United States). They may not have received an Explore La Crosse scholarship within the past three years.

Toyota “Let’s Go Places” Scholarship
This scholarship was established through the generosity of Toyota Motor Sales USA in 2015. The goal of the Toyota “Let’s Go Places” Scholarship Program is to recruit individuals into the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers by providing all of the resources necessary so that an individual can attend an AGLOW Annual Conference, Media Camp or Cast & Blast event without any out-of-pocket expenses. Our goal is to bring those actively working in outdoor media or students pursuing a career in outdoor communications, into the network and show them the benefits of belonging to an outdoor communicator’s organization.
Each scholarship recipient will be paired with a mentor from the committee to help them navigate the Annual Conference, Media Camp or Cast & Blast event.
