The Uni­ver­sity of Mon­te­vallo — lo­cated 45 miles south­west of Birm­ing­ham, Alabama — will of­fer what ap­pears to be the na­tion’s first hunt­ing and fish­ing schol­ar­ship. The “Pres­i­dent’s Out­door Schol­ar­ship” will in­clude cour­ses in con­ser­va­tion, game man­age­ment, hunt­ing and fish­ing tech­niques and strate­gies, out­door sports, en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues and how to pre­pare fish and wild game for the ta­ble.

“We live in an area of the coun­try where hunt­ing and fish­ing are part of the ethos and part of our cul­ture,” uni­ver­sity pres­i­dent John Ste­wart tells Yel­lowham­mer, a re­gional news or­ga­ni­za­tion. “I per­son­ally grew up do­ing a lot of hunt­ing and fish­ing, with a great deal of re­spect for out­door re­sources. We saw this as a way to serve so many stu­dents in our area who come to col­lege and study, but also would like to re­main plugged into their pas­sions out­side the class­room.”
