Educational Opportunities, News and Updates

 

The Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council and its Education Committee members are pleased to announce the availability of up to three undergraduate or graduate scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year. These scholarships support the aspiration of American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) to build their capacity to effectively manage their fisheries and related resources through employment of their own people. These scholarships cover the cost of tuition and fees and some living expenses.  However, for undergraduates, there is an expectation that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be completed early and Pell grants obtained so the relevant university’s Financial Aid Office can determine the amount of aid needed. Click here for more information and a complete scholarship application. Funding for the scholarships comes in part from the NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office and Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center. For further details, please contact Sylvia Spalding at info.wpcouncil@noaa.gov or phone (808) 522-8220.
