The Norman S. Baldwin Fishery Science scholarship is intended to promote academic excellence by encouraging young scientists to undertake graduate research in fishery biology and to enter the field of Great Lakes science. The scholarship is awarded annually to promising M.Sc. or Ph.D. students whose research is likely to make a significant contribution to the understanding of Great Lakes fishery science. Applicants must be master's or Ph.D. students at the time of application, whose proposed research topic is relevant to Great Lakes fishery research, and who have not previously received the award.
Up to 2 scholarships of $3,000 each can be awarded. Ideally the scholarships will go to 1 M.Sc. student and 1 Ph.D. student; however, the Awards Committee will distribute these scholarships as it sees fit. In addition, the scholarship winner(s) will receive a one-year membership with IAGLR, including an electronic subscription to the Journal of Great Lakes Research. The winner will receive the award at the banquet during the annual conference.
