The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC awards up to four scholarship grants annually, each with a value of up to $1,500. These scholarships are available to students enrolled in a fish culture or fisheries 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 BC in one of the following fields: fish culture; recreational fisheries management; fisheries enhancement, conservation and/or research. Funds will be awarded as a tuition credit for the fall term upon proof of full time enrollment. Previous recipients are not eligible to reapply.
How to apply for a scholarship
Interested applicants may submit either a short essay or an audio-visual presentation that outlines:1) your career aspirations, 2) how your past experience, interests and chosen educational program will benefit BC’s freshwater recreational fisheries upon your graduation, and 3) an environmental issue in BC that’s important to you and the reason why.
