Wild Fish For All Scholarship - Application due November 15, 2023
Academic Scholarship for BIPOC in Fisheries Conservation
The Native Fish Society believes that supporting diverse voices builds a groundswell for the revival of abundant wild fish in the Pacific Northwest. To elevate these diverse voices and breakdown barriers to racial and gender diversity in fisheries conservation, we created the Wild Fish For All scholarship. In 2023, we are again joined by the Tualatin Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited and will be offering two Wild Fish For All Scholarships.
Two students will be selected this year as our Wild Fish For All Scholars. We will provide the winners with a $1,000 scholarship to put toward college tuition, fees, housing, and books. The top five applicants will also receive a free one-year membership to the Native Fish Society.
Identify as BIPOC; BIPOC women strongly encouraged to apply.
Passionate about reviving abundant wild fish, free-flowing rivers, and thriving local communities in the Pacific Northwest.
Enrolled in a fisheries conservation program or demonstrable academic focus or project/work experience on fisheries science, conservation, or policy.
