US Pacific Territories Fishery Capacity-Building Scholarship Due July 19, 2024

HONOLULU (19 June 2024) The Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council and its Education Committee members are pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for the 2024-2025 academic year. These scholarships support the aspiration of American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to build their capacity to effectively manage their fisheries and related resources by employing people from the local communities.

Students with strong ties to these territories are eligible for scholarships that cover the cost of tuition and fees and some living expenses. The amount will be based on the University’s estimated cost of attendance. While the Committee has a strong preference for graduate students, applications for undergraduate students with two years or less until graduation are also being accepted.
