The John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship has renewed 
Platinum Level Partnership with Pope and Young

Pope and Young is proud to announce that the John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship has committed to preserving, promoting, and protecting the sport of bowhunting by renewing their partnership with Pope and Young as a Platinum level Corporate Partner.

“I was introduced to the sport of archery at a young age by my older brother I understand the importance of passing this heritage on to future generations, and I understand the vital role Pope and Young plays in conserving our heritage,” stated Jim Mesh, of the John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship. “Our conservation efforts align with Pope and Young’s and I want to work alongside them to help continue the heritage of archery and bowhunting, much the same way my brother did for me.”

The receipt of the 2023 John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship will be awarded at the 33rd Biennial Pope and Young Convention in Reno, NV. Any student going into a conservation related field is eligible to apply. If you would like to submit an applicant to be considered, please visit or the 363 Hunt Club on Facebook for more contact information.  

“There are many who say they are passionate about helping youth get involved in hunting, and then there are folks like Jim Mesh who consistently step up to the plate and deliver,” stated Dylan Ray of Pope and Young. “With their annual events to introduce kids to the great outdoors, and the scholarships they offer to those wanting to pursue a career in conservation, there is no doubt that they truly care about conservation and passing on a legacy to the next generation.”
