Apply Now for Nick Theos Scholarships to PLC Conference
December 14, 2018

The Public Lands Council this week opened the application period for the 2019 Nick Theos Scholarships. The scholarships provide students with a passion for the western livestock industry an opportunity to attend the 2019 PLC Spring Legislative Conference on April 1-2 in Washington, D.C.

The PLC Legislative Conference brings together top industry leaders, elected officials and other stakeholders to discuss public policy issues impacting public lands ranchers. Selected participants will engage in an unforgettable hands-on learning experience exploring legislative priorities and navigating the regulatory environment of public lands ranching.

Two Nick Theos scholarships are available for 2019. The scholarships provide a $250 stipend, complimentary hotel accommodations on Capitol Hill, and complimentary conference registration. While PLC is unable to pay for travel in full, additional sponsorships to help cover travel costs are encouraged.

Nick Theos - a founding member of PLC and lifetime supporter of the livestock industry - passed away on April 11, 2013, at the age of 92. The scholarship was created by the Theos family to encourage the next generation to engage in the policy issues facing public lands ranching.
