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. One student will be selected each year as our Wild Fish For All Scholar. We will provide the winner with a $1,000 scholarship to put toward college tuition, fees, housing, and books. The top five applicants will also receive a one-year membership to the Native Fish Society.
Eligible applicants must identify as BIPOC, BIPOC women are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicant must be passionate about reviving abundant wild fish, free-flowing rivers, and thriving local communities in the Pacific Northwest. Enrollment in a fisheries conservation program or demonstrable academic focus on fisheries science, conservation, or policy is required.
