Griscom Scholarship

Griscom Scholarships to Audubon’s Hog Island Camp

Wyncote Audubon Society is pleased to offer Griscom Scholarships to Audubon’s Hog Island Camp for teens, educators and others with a serious interest in what the camp has to offer for ornithology, bird watching, environmental and nature studies, etc. First consideration is given to teens living in our chapter territory of Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties. Non-resident teens may also be considered if they have a strong tie to our chapter.

Primary eligibility

14-17 year old girls and boys who have demonstrated curiosity and/or passion about birds, and who are willing to share their experiences with our chapter and/or their local community. A presentation at one of our monthly bird club meetings would amply satisfy this requirement.

Secondary eligibility

Teachers and youth leaders who are active in the fields of ornithology, bird watching, environmental and/or nature studies who reside in our chapter territory are encouraged to apply for Educator Camp or another camp offered. Persons receiving one of these scholarships will also be required to give back to the chapter, usually by making a presentation to the club at a monthly meeting.

How to apply

Contact Wyncote Scholarship Chair Peter Burns ( or any member of the chapter board as listed on the chapter website. Spaces for camps fill quickly. Applications are available starting October 20 and must be received by January 31.

Scholarship covers all fees, lodging, meals, instruction and in-camp boat trips; does not include transportation to/from camp session.
