The Wyoming Women's Foundation is offering scholarships to pay participation expenses for women interested in joining the 2013 Wyoming Women's Antelope Hunt. The hunt, which is the first event of its kind for women in the nation, will be held Oct. 3-6, 2013 at the Ranch at Ucross in northeastern Wyoming. The Wyoming Women's Foundation created the event to celebrate women hunters and raise funds for its efforts investing in the economic self-sufficiency of women in the state.

The scholarship covers the cost of hunting on private lands, a hunting license, lodging, and meals for the event. Selected applicants will be responsible for their own transportation to the event. Applicants must be women who are over the age of 18. Ideal candidates would have a desire to learn to hunt to feed their family and are looking for mentorship to do so. However, the scholarship is not exclusively for first time hunters.
