Science is at the core of formulating all our policy decisions, so helping to ensure the best and brightest of the next generation have everything they need to continue their education is a win for marine resources and for anglers. The Science of Conservation Scholarship Program is a unique partnership among industry, conservation groups, and marine science centers designed to invest in the next generation of marine scientists and prepare them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
