WFO occasionally provides competitive scholarships to help young people who are interested in field ornithology attend birding trips or conferences. The Pasadena Audubon/WFO Youth Scholarship fund was created to honor the memory of Mike San Miguel, a key contributor to and beloved friend of Pasadena Audubon and WFO. Applicants must be members of Western Field Ornithologists.

All students in Grades 6 through 12, who attend our conferences, automatically receive a scholarship waiver of the $95 conference registration fee. The 2015 WFO conference will be in Billings, Montana June 10–14. Up to four youth scholarships will be awarded prior to conference registration. The scholarship application process will be available to qualifying youth in the last week of December 2014.
