Awards and Applications

Equal Opportunities Section Student Travel Award


2017 EOS Travel Award Recipients

The Equal Opportunities Section (EOS) is leading an effort to increase participation in the American Fisheries Society (AFS) by graduate and undergraduate students from underrepresented groups, including women and minorities. Travel grants not to exceed $500 each will be awarded on a competitive basis to assist these students with expenses incurred when attending the annual meeting. We will provide as many awards as we have funding for (typically 3-5).

Funds are not distributed in advance. Students must be present at the Equal Opportunities Society section luncheon and business meeting at the Annual Meeting to receive the funds.

2015 EOS Travel Award Recipients

The EOS encourages application from students who have not attended AFS meetings in the past. We will support award recipients during the meeting through orientation and mentorship if desired by the student. There are wonderful networking opportunities, technical sessions, continuing education, trade show displays, and career/job opportunities, and graduate school opportunities at the meeting. We can also assist students in finding additional travel support if needed. Submissions must be received by May 1, 2018. We look forward to hearing from you!
