Information

The Fidalgo – San Juan Island Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers offers grants and scholarships at two levels for students who are going into the field of fisheries.

One category is for students graduating from high school who would like to pursue continuing education or achieve a degree in fisheries or environmental sciences. Our hope is that this scholarship is used for a student that would like to become a biologist within the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Our other scholarship is for students who have junior or senior class standing or will be receiving an associates degree or higher in fisheries and will be pursuing an advanced degree in fisheries management. Once again our hope is that the recipient of this scholarship is also a student that would like to become a biologist within the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

With our grant program we are looking for outstanding undergraduate or graduate applicants, enrolled on a substantially full-time basis and pursuing a major field of study closely related to Fisheries Biology or Fisheries Management.  Preference will be given to students who have exhausted previous funding and/or have completed a rough draft of their thesis and may complete it within one year, and/or are specifically researching Pacific Northwest marine finfish.

To receive full consideration each student that applies should provide the following items:

A) Letter of interest to include a brief narrative about themselves, their education plans, and their goals.
B) A resume
C) College or High School transcript
D) Letters of recommendation (no more than three)

Applications may be sent to:

All scholarship applications must be post marked and received by the scholarship committee no later than May 1.
