AMMO Scholarship Program

AMMO Scholarship Program

The association of Mackenzie Mountain Outfitters (AMMO) is proud to be able to offer scholarships to the youth of the Mackenzie River Valley. We want to show our support for the local economy and invest in the future of the NWT. AMMO is offering four (4) scholarships to youth from the DehCho, Sahtu, or Inuvik/Delta regions.

Eligible students must be graduating from grade 12 or have completed their first year of post-secondary education and planning on pursuing careers in wildlife management, aviation, or as a professional guide or outfitter. The successful applicants will receive $2,500.00 each to aid in their post-secondary education.

To be eligible

  1. The AMMO scholarship competition is open to all grade 12 graduating students from communities of the Mackenzie River Valley. You must be planning a career in the fields mentioned above and be enrolled in an accredited post-secondary institution, or an AMMO-approved guide school or flight school. Students who have already completed their first year of post-secondary education in the chosen fields will also be considered. Scholarships will be awarded during the first semester once proof of enrollment has been provided.
  2. Applicants must be planning on pursuing a career in some aspect of wildlife management, aviation, or as a guide. For example wildlife biologist, research biologist, habitat biologist, forest technician, conservation officer, pilot flight training, or professional guide or outfitter.
