Gerald C. Corcoran Education Grant

In 2011 the North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) is again offering up to $1000 to sponsor a project or projects to educate the general public about native North American fishes and their environment.

The Gerald C. Corcoran Education Grant will fund such educational projects as:

* Producing and distributing educational materials(books, brochures, posters, displays, video, Internet resources, etc.)
* Stream surveys with public education as a primary goal
* Public lectures
* Nature center displays
* School materials and displays
* Teacher training workshops

The award was established in memory of past NANFA President Gerald C. Corcoran, who stressed public education regarding the continent's native fishes. NANFA is an organization made up of home and professional aquarists, and other professional researchers, conservationists, anglers and naturalists. As its name implies, the group is dedicated to the study and conservation of North America's native fishes.

Grant proposals are due March 31, 2011. Proposals will be evaluated and ranked by a review committee, and funding awarded on June 1, 2011.

Qualifying applicants must be members of NANFA but non-members may submit their annual dues with their proposals.

For additional information, contact Sajjad Lateef
