Applicants for the AMIGOS Centennial Award must first apply to the Colorado: Western Slope project and be age-eligible to participate in the program.
These awards are open to applicants of all backgrounds. Awards will be granted on a rolling basis until available funds are exhausted. NOTE: Applicants for this award may also be eligible for AMIGOS need-based financial assistance. We encourage volunteers needing financial support to apply for both the Centennial Award as well as our standard financial assistance.
Applications will be reviewed by the AMIGOS Centennial Award committee. The selection of recipients will be based on interest, leadership, and commitment to conservation efforts as demonstrated in the short essay responses on their application.
