Scholarships are available to students enrolled in a fish culture or natural resource management program within a recognized post-secondary educational institution in British Columbia.
To be eligible, applicants must have completed at least their first year of postsecondary studies and plan to continue as a student, with the intent of establishing a career in B.C. in one of the following fields: fish culture; recreational fisheries management; fisheries enhancement, conservation and/or research.
Funds are awarded as a tuition credit for the fall term upon proof of full time enrollment. Previous recipients are not eligible to reapply.

1) your career aspirations,
