Ben Pauli has been named the recipient of the 2005 Aldo Leopold Memorial Scholarship. A junior from Madison majoring in biology, Pauli is the first Lawrence University student to win the award.

Established in 1993, the $500 scholarship is awarded annually by the Wisconsin chapter of the Wildlife Society, an international nonprofit organization of wildlife professionals, including researchers, teachers and administrators.

Named in honor of the renowned scientist, environmentalist, UW-Madison professor and author of the seminal book on conservation, “A Sand County Almanac,” the Leopold scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate student in Wisconsin who has maintained a minimum 3.0 grade point average while majoring in wildlife ecology, zoology, biology or a related area of study. Only one scholarship per year is awarded.
