Native Fish Society Wild Fish for All Scholarship

Website: Native Fish Society


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 2022, we are excited to be joined by the Tualatin Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited in this endeavor. Through their generous support, we will be offering two Wild Fish For All Scholarships in 2022.
