The American Fisheries Society is a worldwide organization of professional fishery scientists. Founded in 1870, the society is the world's oldest and largest organization dedicated to strengthening the fisheries profession, advancing fisheries science, and conserving fisheries resources. The mission of the Society and the Idaho Chapter is to improve the conservation and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems by 1) advancing fisheries and aquatic science and 2) promoting the development of fisheries professionals.
The ICAFS Susan B. Martin Scholarship is intended to foster the development of fish and aquatic professionals and is awarded annually to a graduate student attending any school in Idaho. Graduates should be studying fish and aquatic studies. Winners will be notified by April 30. This scholarship is funded by an endowment which was created with contributions from the Martin family and the Idaho Chapter.
