Our Cabela’s Apprenticeship Program is an opportunity for students to gain experience doing research that addresses real issues centered around:
- recruiting and maintaining participants in outdoor activities
- managing fish and wildlife and creating their habitat
- protecting threatened and endangered species
- supporting ecosystem conservation
Funding for apprentices typically averages about $3,000, but other levels of funding are considered if justified in the application. Applications are emailed to all students in January and are due back in February.
The program is a partnership among Cabela’s, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with funding provided by Cabela’s.
