To honor select recipients of the William T. Hornaday Silver Medal award, the Camp Fire Conservation Fund offers an annual William T. Hornaday Silver Medal Scholarship. One scholarship recipient is chosen by Camp Fire from the Silver Medal winners each year. Consideration for this scholarship is automatic upon being awarded the Hornaday Silver Medal.
On May 18th, 2016, the Fund presented the very first William T. Hornaday Scholarship Award to Eagle Scout Porter Bradford of Blanding, Utah. Porter was selected among six Hornaday Silver Medal Award winners for his outstanding and exemplary work in wildlife and habitat conservation.
