As a Pacific Northwest sport fishing 0rganization, we support undergraduate or graduate research on recreationally important fish species or groups in order to maintain and protect our region’s resources for this and future generations of sportsmen.  Our emphasis is on the ecology, recovery and management of west coast finfish, with particular attention to salmonids and other select marine species. 

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 salmonids or Pacific Northwest marine finfish.  Individual awards have ranged from $1,000 to $10,000 dependent upon requirements and qualifications
