Catfish Management Technical Committee Scholarship
This scholarship was created at the spring 2015 Southern Division meeting to provide financial assistance to a graduate student in the southeastern United States (Alabama, Arkansas, Washington D.C., Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Virgin Islands, West Virginia) who is studying catfish-related fisheries management. This scholarship was also developed in an attempt to garner more student involvement in the Southern Division Technical Committees. A 3-person sub-committee (Chair, Secretary-Treasurer, & Chair-Elect)
will review the applications and select the scholarship winner. One $300 scholarship will be awarded annually to a student with outstanding research and academic performance. This award will be made directly to the student and not the student’s educational institution. It can be used for any aspect of the graduate education including, but not limited to, tuition, textbooks, equipment, travel or living expenses. It is not intended to replace any funding obligated to the student. Scholarship recipients will be required to present the results of their study to the Committee during our annual meeting held in conjunction with the SDAFS spring meeting. The deadline for submitting the required information to the scholarship committee chair (Jerry Brown, [email protected]) is December 15, 2017. The chair will distribute copies to the review committee members.
