The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited / William L. Arbuckle Memorial Scholarship
Trout Unlimited is about more than just fishing. Besides the various conservation projects / programs, educational initiatives are a cornerstone of our chapter’s mission. One such initiative is the annual awarding of the Pisgah Chapter Trout Unlimited / William L. Arbuckle Memorial Scholarship.
This donation and annual awarding of the scholarship is handled completely under the direction of the Community Foundation of Henderson County (CFHC) in connection with an endowment fund that was established for this purpose.
This memorial fund was established in 2006 and honors the memory of William “Bill” L. Arbuckle, an avid fisherman, supporter and former director of The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Mr. Arbuckle contributed much of his time, talent and resources to the success of the chapter.
The $1000 award is granted to a recipient who is accepted to an accredited degree granting college or university located in a state within the Southern Appalachian Region. Candidates must be pursuing an undergraduate and/or graduate degree in the field of fisheries , freshwater biology, aquaculture, wildlife management or other related fields; with special consideration given to those focused on fresh water fisheries and/or native trout populations.
