CONCORD, N.H. -- Women interested in applying for scholarships to defray the cost of attending New Hampshire's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) fall weekend workshop must apply before May 15, 2012, to be considered for financial assistance.
To apply for a BOW scholarship, go to www.nhbow.com and print out and complete the BOW scholarship application. Mail it in, along with the $30 scholarship application fee, before the May 15 deadline. Scholarship applications will not be accepted after that date. Scholarship applicants will be notified by May 25, 2012, of the status of their application.
If you are awarded a scholarship, this does not guarantee you a place in the fall BOW program. Those who are offered a fall BOW scholarship must also download, complete and mail in the regular fall BOW registration form at www.nhbow.com as soon as possible after the form becomes available on May 31. Registration for fall BOW is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited and the program fills up fast. If the program is full when your registration is received, you will not get in.
Among the BOW scholarships being offered this year is a special mother-daughter scholarship. Both mother and daughter must apply; the daughter must be age 18 or older.
