Funding Requests

The objectives of the Education Section of the American Fisheries Society are to: i) improve the quality of college and university education for fisheries scientists, ii) promote exchange of post-secondary education information, techniques, and materials among educators and among educational institutions, and iii) foster improved communication and information exchange among fishery educators, employers, fisheries specialists, students, and the public.

The Education Section currently accepts General Funding Requests and funding requests for Student Colloquiums. To obtain the greatest value from the limited Section resources, projects that meet the objectives of the Education Section will be prioritized for funding over those that do not.

Funding requests should be submitted electronically to the Education Section President by July 1. Please see evaluation criteria for further information.
