COSA Scholarship (Conference Registration) & Delani Wheeler Scholarship (Registration + Lodging)

COSA will award several scholarships to cover the registration costs for the 2023 conference. This award is made possible by our sponsors.

In addition, through a generous donation from Delani Wheeler’s family and friends, COSA will award at least one full scholarship, covering registration and lodging. A charter member of the COSA Steering Committee and employee of the City of Boulder, Delani’s passion and energy contributed hugely to COSA’s formation and success.


Candidates must be involved in open space, land trust, or natural resource management as an employee, board member, or student in an accredited program at the college level. Copy of a current student ID may be requested.
