NANFA Awards at Least $1000 For Conservation Research Each Year
Since 2001 NANFA has funded the Conservation Research Grant, focusing on supporting research relating to the conservation of North America's indigenous fish fauna, particularly those that are threatened or endangered. The Conservation Research Grant could be awarded to someone in academia, a conservation group, or to an independent researcher. The maximum award for any one proposal is budgeted at $1000. The deadline for submission of an application is January 20th this year. Award decisions will be announced by March 31st.
Recipients are asked to write an article on the results of their research for publication in American Currents and are encouraged to present their findings at NANFA's Annual Convention. Please review the Conservation Research Grant section of the NANFA website for additional details (http://www.nanfa.org/research.shtml).
