CONCORD, New Hampshire — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say women interested in obtaining a scholarship to offset the cost of this fall's Becoming An Outdoors Woman workshop have until May 1 to apply.
This fall's BOW weekend will take place September 11-13 at Rockywold/Deephaven Camps on Squam Lake in Holderness, New Hampshire.
The fall BOW weekend costs $335, which includes lodging, all meals, equipment and instruction.
Fish and Game officials say several scholarships are available to help defray the cost of attending,
Among the BOW scholarships being offered this year is a special mother-daughter scholarship. Both mother and daughter must apply; the daughter must be age 18 or older.
The $35 scholarship application fee is refundable if applicants do not receive a scholarship.
Participants in the weekend workshop select four sessions from more than 30 different outdoor skills workshops, including archery, fishing and fly-fishing, camping, field dressing game, hiking, kayaking, rifle, shotgun, nature photography, outdoor survival, campfire cooking, mountain biking, map and compass, and more.
Regular registration forms for fall BOW will be available on June 1 and will be accepted by regular mail only. Walk-in applications will not be accepted, as the program typically fills up fast.
Officials say registration for BOW is first-come, first-served. If the program is full when a registration is received, applicants won't get in, even if they were awarded a scholarship.
