Dave Brittell Memorial Scholarship


This scholarship was established to honor a man who loved wildlife, was dedicated to preserving tracts of land for future generations, and encouraged others to pursue their dreams. Dave Brittell’s passion as a wildlife biologist left a lasting impact on wildlife habitat and species in the Pacific Northwest region. 

This scholarship may be used for tuition, books, or living expenses incurred while pursuing a degree in wildlife biology or a related natural resource field at a college or university in the Pacific Northwest. The award recipient must attend school on a full-time basis during the academic year of the scholarship. A scholarship in the amount of $1000 will be awarded and paid in the second term of the scholarship year, provided the student remains in good academic standing. There are some variables in the selection process, however merit will be the principal determining factor in selection. Candidates will be evaluated on leadership and citizenship qualities, dedication to purpose, scholastic achievement, potential for continuing development, and outlook as demonstrated by participation in activities other than scholastic activities. Two letters of recommendation should address these qualities as demonstrated by the applicant, and an application form must be completed by the applicant. Letters of recommendation should include contact information.

Submit a completed application and letters of recommendation to the address provided on the application no later than April 30.
