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 and residents of western North America.

All students in Grades 6 through 12, who attend our conferences, automatically receive a scholarship waiver of the $95 conference registration fee.

The funds for our scholarships have been generously donated by:

  • Pasadena Audubon Society – Primary Sponsor
  • Sierra Foothills Audubon Society, CA (2015)
  • WFO Members
