Created and supported by Kentucky BHA chapter leader and retired colonel, Mike Abell and his wife Aline, the BHA scholarship was created in 2020 at the University of Louisville. The BHA scholarship is intended to be awarded to a political science student who has aspirations to one day serve in public office but who has little to no experience with hunting, angling, or the outdoors. The intent is to immerse them in the BHA community where they will forge relationships and gain experiences on our public lands and waters and walk away with a better understanding of and connection to our conservationist values. The scholarship highlights the importance of reaching across the aisle and celebrates finding common ground.
