The NW Fish Culture Conference Student Scholarship
SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE: November 2, 2013
CONTACT: Ryan Couture (Ryan.b.Couture@state.or.us)
The Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is encouraging hatchery managers and instructors to nominate hatchery technicians and students in an aquaculture program for a scholarship to attend the 2012 Northwest Fish Culture Conference, December 11-13 in Portland, Oregon (http://www.fws.gov/columbiariver/nwfcc2012.html).
There are two $500 scholarships available — one for a non-student hatchery technician, and one for a student in an aquaculture-related program. They can be used for any costs related to the conference (registration, travel, lodging, etc.).
Nominations should include:
- Name and contact information of the nominee and nominator
- AFS membership number of nominee (if a member)
- Brief description of the nominee’s recent school and/or work experience
- Expected career benefits from attending the NWFCC
Nominations will be evaluated by the ORAFS Aquaculture Committee and ExCom. Priority will be given to AFS members, and non-members will be encouraged to use a portion of the scholarship to join AFS.
Recipients will be notified via email by Nov 09.
Winners are encouraged to submit a summary of their trip to the Piscatorial Press, and also attend our OR Chapter AFS Annual Meeting Feb. 23-25, 2013 in Bend, OR, where we will have a session highlighting aquaculture advances.
