2013 Wally McClure Scholarship

The Montana Chapter of the American Fisheries Society lost an outstanding member and friend in November of 2003. Wally McClure was an incredible advocate and leader for conservation and wise management of aquatic resources in Montana.

In an effort to continue his legacy and promote educational opportunities for fisheries students in Montana, the MT Chapter AFS established an annual scholarship in his name for undergraduate and graduate fisheries students.

In 2013, the Montana Chapter of the American Fisheries Society will be presenting two Wally McClure Student Fisheries Scholarships this February at our annual meeting at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, Montana. The McClure Scholarships will be awarded to individuals pursuing a graduate or undergraduate degree in aquatic natural resources from a University/College in Montana. Graduate projects should be focused on native fisheries conservation, management, and/or habitat restoration. This document establishes the annual undergraduate and graduate student awards in fisheries and sets forth the conditions under which it shall be dispersed.
